Workshop Description

Food Defense Workshop  One Day Workshop  Thursday, June 14, 2018 (8:30 am – 4:00 pm)

This training course is the hallmark of Food Defense. It includes training to educate employees and management on how to protect the food supply from intentional and deliberate contamination or sabotage from terrorist groups, disgruntled workers or someone playing a hoax. It is critical and imperative that companies and facilities are prepared for whatever crises may occur within their organization. Companies are legally required to perform a vulnerability assessment and take steps to protect food that is considered at-risk for intentional adulteration, such as bulk storage and shipments.

Rod Wheeler (instructor) is a Homeland Security and Global Food Defense and Law Enforcement expert. He has worked as a homicide detective in Washington, D.C., an investigator for the State of Ohio Attorney General, a crime analyst for Fox News Channel and has made over 1,000 television appearances as a law enforcement and security expert. He is now in the private sector and is available for on-site vulnerability assessments and training at your location.

This training includes multiple scenarios of actual workplace incidents including discussion as to the best way to handle various situations. Through videos, group discussions and roleplay, this is a very hands-on training that keeps everyone motivated to learn various procedures to protect the food in their plant or store and to be more aware of their everyday surroundings. It also includes examples where an employee’s safety may be threatened and how to best handle the situation. From discussing steps necessary to handle a major crisis to determining how to prevent someone from tampering with equipment or food deliveries, they are all covered.

Who Will Benefit
All businesses, whether in large, metropolitan areas or in rural areas, will benefit from this workshop. It is important for a wide range of people including: anyone who is at the front desk greeting the public, those who work long hours and may be leaving the office late at night or offices where parking may be in a place of low visibility, just to name a few. Plant managers and restaurant workers who open or close are especially vulnerable as well as those who handle money or business deposits. A company’s survival could depend on how prepared they are in preventing and/or responding to various disasters.
