Industry is obliged to have Food Safety Programs. The "diary" will be a proactive tool to cushion the demand for extensive documentation. Many members of the harvest, retail and wholesale sectors of the industry have not been accustomed in working with so much documentation. There is a need for the FSP to be practical and workable. A customised diary with daily pages demanding the operators to fill in records that support their FSP will make their respective tasks easier.

Budget expenditure: $4,350.00
Principal Investigator: Ross McGowan
Organisation: Seafood Industry Victoria Inc (SIV)
Project start/end date: 29 Nov 2002 - 25 Feb 2004
1. Research and compile the specific needs for inclusion in this industry "dairy". This will be collected from research involving industry (catching and post-harvest sectors) including stakeholders such as Environmental Health Officers and appropriate authorities.
2. Research and create a visual reference list of similarly designed diaries in other states and/or international examples of what constitutes the best visual presentation of such information (ie design outlay and size(s) of fonts and icons).
3. To develop the design, information and visual appropriateness of the content of outlay of proposed diary.
