JIFSAN 2017 Advisory Council Annual Meeting
FoodRisk.org Workshop - Risk Analysis Tools and Data
A Guided Tour by Tool Creators
November 1-2, 2017
Greenbelt Marriott Hotel, Greenbelt, MD, USA
Over the years, a number of tools have been developed to assist food safety risk analysts in their modeling efforts. These tools have been developed with public funds and are freely available at JIFSAN’s Foodrisk.org website. This workshop introduces stakeholders to these tools and provides examples of how they are used by the agencies to support food safety regulatory decisions.
Speakers will include those who assisted with the development of these tools, those who use these tools to aid their analysis, as well as program managers who had the insight to leverage funds to facilitate the development of a public platform to freely disseminate these tools to interested users. These tools have been peer reviewed and aid analysts in rapidly being able to assess food safety risks.
