HOW DOES IT WORK?
Once you have chosen COOLGUARD, you will receive your login details and can login. First, register your own food safety program. This is done by creating a number of control areas, from which you can create your work tasks. Set the interval and start date. Work tasks are generated from this date. You are now up and running. Under the respective control areas you can set up an unlimited number of work tasks. You set the periods for the work tasks in a simple work tool, depending on when and how often should the work tasks be done.
BENEFITS OF COOLGUARD
As the system is web-based, you have access to your food safety program from any connected computer. You can check the status, select reports and other documentation at any time. No need to worry about backup, installation problems or other issues that can arise when you want to have access from several computers, such as at work and at home. COOLGUARD has been developed in a Microsoft environment with daily backup, anti-virus protection etc. ICU also has its own development department, which means that new regulatory requirements can be directly implemented and that development for an even more user-friendly interface is ongoing.
The control areas are those areas in your company subjected to food-safety. The actual work tasks lie under the control areas.
Work tasks are generated from the respective control areas in the interval you have specified for them. If a work task is due, a deviation is created. If you also use the Coolguard temperature logging system, you can easily connect the handset to your work task. This is both effective and time-saving, for example during arrival control, and also reduces the risk of disorder and neglect.
Each work task is assigned to an employee in charge. This is the person responsible for the task being done. The number of employees in charge is unlimited, which means you can specify your work tasks to be as detailed as your company requires, e.g. kitchen, washing up, kitchen manager, goods reception etc.
The system contains several different types of deviations: Some are deviations generated from expired work tasks and others are manually created. For customers with automatic temperature registration, there is also a deviation for temperature alarms, and faulty handset readings.
All deviations can be part acknowledged in up to ten different steps.
