Diseases have significant impact on production, financials, staff morale and farm reputation. We can minimize this impact by decreasing biosecurity risk and as a result, the number of disease introductions. Everything that goes into or out of the farm needs to be considered a risk. Therefore production staff and any personnel on site needs to be highly observant of these activities. Participation in PIC SCAN program provides a system to educate staff, increase awareness, record observations and take action.
The PIC SCAN program provides a tool to communicate observed biosecurity risk and take immediate corrective action. Production staff members are the final protective barrier between the outside “dirty” world and the high-health populations. Participation in PIC SCAN will enhance your daily monitoring of risk.
The strategy is based on identifying, quantifying, and documenting common risk, which will help create both immediate and long term action plans.
- See: Identify risk and opportunities
- Call: Communicate and report observations
- Act: Stop, control, and mitigate risk but do not ignore
- eNhance: Correct the process and never stop improving
