Underwriter Laboratories launched UL Food Safety, a new program dedicated to addressing the global food industry's needs by promoting standards-based safety solutions.

UL Food Safety aims to mitigate risk using science-based processes to address industry concerns, new government regulations and heightened consumer awareness of food safety issues.

The initial training platform includes three courses. The first, "Food Safety Culture," is designed to guide food industry executives through the process of creating an organizational culture to ensure that food products are safe and meet regulatory requirements. Two additional courses will be available in fall. These are "Food Safety Awareness," which informs food industry workers of the "first line of defense" in food safety, as well as "Evaluation of HACCP & Food Safety Preventative Control Programs” for mid-level management and auditors.
