PRODUCE SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT

Steps to getting your completion certificate

A PSRA is a way for a farm to ensure that they are following best produce safety
practices as they align with the Produce Safety Rule and Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs).

1

CONTACT

Contact your local Produce Safety Technician to determine when they can meet you or another food safety representative on your farm for a PSRA.

2

SCHEDULE

Schedule a date that you will be able to do a walk through of the farm and
review the PSRA with a Technician.

3

MEET

Meet on the farm and do a walk through of farm. Review the assessment and parts of your

operation that apply to produce safety, or schedule a follow up to go through the assessment.

4

ACTION PLAN

An action plan is provided to the grower on the next steps they need to take to
implement certain practices and procedures.

5

IMPLEMENTATION

The farm works to implement action items and complete their
Food Safety Plan, with continued assistance from Technician as needed.

6

REVIEW

The farm contacts their Technician once they feel they have completed
the action items and their Food Safety Plan.

7

REVISIT

A Technician schedules another visit with you to check that the action
items and Food Safety Plan are ready to go. (This may take multiple visits.)

8

SUBMISSION

Once complete, the Technician submits a certificate to be signed
and approved by the State.

9

AWARD

The Technician awards the farm a Completion Certificate and helps them
complete the Logo Agreement if they would like logo usage.

10

CHECK-IN

The Technician will continue to be available to provide assistance after completion. The Technician

will schedule a revisit with the farm on the 3 year mark of them being awarded a Certificate.

This is detailed as the 'expiration date' on the Certificate.

11

CONTINUATION

If there are no produce safety concerns on the 3 year mark, the Certificate stays with the farm.

If any action items arise, the Technician works with the grower to implement any changes necessary.
