Safe Transportation of Food
With food safety concerns and the increase of last mile delivery, it has never been more important to make sure your staff is properly trained. Unsafe food handling and pathogens cause foodborne illnesses that lead to an estimated 47.8 million illnesses, 127839 hospitalizations and over 3,000 deaths annually*. Public recalls due to these pathogens and allergens can be very costly to companies. PLM is proud to offer a comprehensive training program for operations, drivers and warehouse workers that meet the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods Rule (STF) and Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requirements to ensure safe food handling.

FSMA Compliance Training
The Federal Department of Agrigulture (FDA)'s Sanitary Transportation Rule (STF) requires rail and motor vehicle carriers covered by the rule to provide food safety training to staff engaged in transportation operations. This requirement applies when the carrier and shipper have agreed in a written contract that the carrier is responsible, in whole or in part, for the sanitary conditions during transportation. Such carriers are required to establish and maintain records documenting the training of operations personnel. PLM offers a training platform that will keep customers in compliance with government regulations and allowing customers to stay at the forefront of changing industry standards and regulatory compliance.
FSMA Training - Powered by Iron Apple, this training facilitates compliance with the STF Rule by teaching trainees how to maintain sanitary conditions, monitor temperatures and properly operate the Transport Refrigeration Unit (TRU). Online training classes can be accessed by smartphones, tablet, laptop or desktop computers through Iron Apple's eClassroom. Training documentation and certificates of completion are stored on this platform, which meets the STF Rule requirements for food safety training for drivers, operations and brokers for motor carriers and distribution centers.
The Iron Apple FSMA Sanitary Transport Compliance Training Program consists of a 4 part e-learning solution. The training materials and content meets and exceeds the FSMA & Sanitary Transport Rule training requirements. Two groups of content are available for the Operations Team and Drivers, making the training process focused and efficient.
