9 Ways Technology Aids FSMS Implementation And Continuous Improvement

There are many aspects of resource allocation to consider when developing a food safety management system (FSMS) for a business and there are efficiencies to be gained in almost every area of an FSMS. Technology and software can provide your team with the tools to monitor production targets and deviations in real-time and more efficiently than visual inspection.

Risk Assessment
An effective FSMS documents hazards associated with processes and establishes controls to mitigate those hazards. Controls are specific to the production environment, raw materials, and finished product. Risk Ranger is a free online tool that calculates a risk ranking based on ingredients used, associated pathogens, and processing combinations. Risk Ranger is a great first step when designing a new production line or for a business start-up.
