Corrective Actions

The Sanitation Process Preventive Control form can also have a corrective action column where you will note what actions should be taken when a product or process has not met requirements. Corrective actions can be quite extensive, so the documentation on the monitoring form may just summarize a more detailed procedure.

For example, corrective actions when environmental tests show Salmonella might require stopping production, holding affected product, resampling, intensive dry re-cleaning, testing finished product, and potentially reprocessing or destroying product.

Other sanitation corrective actions, such as for zoning, could be as simple as instructing the employee of their responsibility to dress correctly and stay in their dedicated area.
