What are the most important food safety hazards for my business?
Every business in the food industry is unique because of the different business activity, raw materials they use, the finished product they have, and the production processes they have. All these conditions affect the content of the HACCP plan because of the food safety hazards.
The most important activities to ensure the safety of food products are temperature control (in particular measuring the internal temperature), and measuring cooking temperatures when thermal processing. Don't forget the importance of monitoring techniques because of one biological hazard.
The most common physical hazards are foreign objects that can accidentally get into the finished product and contaminate it. Some examples are hair, dirt, metal staples, broken glass, and bones in fillets. Physical hazards are the easiest to notice and eliminate.
The most common biological hazard is one of the microbiological hazards - Pathogenic microorganisms can cause a threat to human health because they cause most foodborne illnesses.

What is HACCP and why is it necessary?
As a food handler, you need a compliant food safety system - a HACCP plan - for two reasons. Firstly, because HACCP is a legal requirement, and secondly, to keep your business growing.
HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point. It is an internationally recognized system for the whole food chain that aims to reduce potential food safety hazards, and ensure you are serving/selling safe food products. A HACCP plan, a document that is part of your HACCP system, describes all the food-related activities, food production process and processing methods, potential hazards, preventive measures, control measures, and monitoring procedures.
A HACCP plan is notorious for being considered scary or boring. In smaller food establishments, the HACCP plan is sometimes only used once, when opening up a business just to please the local authorities. But as a food operation, you need to be able to evaluate every food safety hazard daily to ensure safe foods for your customers. HACCP plan is the simplest and safest way to avoid unnecessary discomforts like foodborne illnesses or even a tragic incident with unsafe food.
