Incident workshops available

Two workshops on incident prevention and response, organised by the Food Standards Agency for food manufacturers, are due to take place this month in Nottingham.

The objective of the workshops, set up in co-operation with local enforcement authorities, is to provide technical managers from local food manufacturers with information on incident prevention, management and response directly from policy makers at the Agency.

The first event is targeted at large manufacturers and will focus on the Agency's risk assessment, classification and management processes, whereas the second, aimed at small and medium manufacturers, will concentrate on the identification, reporting and management of incidents.

They will take place at on 21 and 28 February, at the Government Office for East Midlands, and Food and Drink Forum offices, respectively.
