More Than Words

Illustrations provide a powerful and effective way to communicate concepts without the use of text. The PSA Grower Training Course teaches individuals about the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule (PSR), how to assess produce safety risks, and implement practices to reduce identified risks. This training contains complex regulatory language and scientific information, which can be difficult to understand. Incorporation of illustrations will provide an opportunity for learners to engage with the information in a different way to enhance their learning experience. These illustrations allow growers to consider risks they may have on their farms, practices that could reduce these risks, and regulatory provisions that may be relevant if they are subject to the FSMA PSR.
