Activities conducted in the course of responding to an actual emergency or testing the emergency response plan should be recorded in the FSMS Emergency Response Activity Log Template. FS1200-3 EMERGENCY RESPONSE ACTIVITY LOG covers the date, location, team leader, activity/request, disposition, and more. The Food Safety Team Leader should maintain any logs related to food safety emergency response or testing.
During an emergency, an FSMS Emergency Response Activity Log Template should be initiated and maintained if at all possible. Within two weeks of the emergency, the Emergency Management Directors should review all FS1200-3 EMERGENCY RESPONSE ACTIVITY LOG with the Food Safety Team Leader, to determine if the emergency response plan was adequate or if it requires revision. Any modification to the plan should be tested at the earliest possible date to ensure its adequacy.
Results of quarterly drills will be recorded on the activity log. This log should be completed in a chronological sequence of events. Keep in mind that emergency situations include external and internal causes, both accidental and deliberate. Top management should establish, implement and maintain procedures to manage potential emergency situations and accidents that can impact food safety and which are relevant to the organization in the food chain.
