Active Managerial Control
The FDA defines Active Managerial Control “as the purposeful incorporation of specific actions or procedures by industry management into the operations of their business to attain control of the foodborne illness risk factors.”

It is taking actions that will prevent a foodborne illness by:

  • Knowing when to restrict or exclude an ill employee.
  • Having knowledgeable, well-trained staff.
  • Having a pro-active approach to identify, evaluate and control food safety hazards.
  • Having Standard Operating Procedures.
  • Knowing corrective actions.
  • Keeping records and monitoring food quality and individuals handling food.
  • Procedure Worksheet for Responding to Vomit & Diarrheal Events
