Creating a Culture of Sanitation
Welcome to the American Floral Endowment's Grow Pro Webinar Series! Throughout this series, our nationally recognized researchers, hosts, and speakers will offer ‘how-to’ advice based on AFE-funded and other research projects to help the industry navigate through these ever-changing growing challenges. The webinar topics are current and offer long-term opportunities for growers to focus on increased profit, greater sustainability, and improved labor efficiency. Each session includes a presentation and interactive Q&A. To see the full series calendar visit endowment.org/GrowPro.

The July 25th session of our series focuses on creating a culture of sanitation.

Successful greenhouse sanitation occurs when operations have clear standard operating procedures (SOPs) and a defined workplace culture where everyone plays a role in selling healthy crops. Dr. Rosa Raudales will provide information on how to start clean and remain clean in your operation and ways to develop a sustainable culture of sanitation in your organization.

Topics will include:
-Discussion of how sanitation requires clear and easy‐to‐implement standard operating procedures and a company‐wide mindset centered around healthy crops and employees.
-How to make sanitation plans part of the culture of a company.
-The importance of 'Clean first, sanitize second.'
-How to empower employees to make proactive sanitation decisions.

Speaker: Dr. Rosa Raudales, University of Connecticut
