Writing and enforcing effective standard operating procedures (SOPs) can be challenging. Any professional working in a regulated industry—from quality assurance techs to R&D, IT, and manufacturing managers—must know how to organize and deliver technical information effectively. Your SOPs and work instructions must be clear, concise, and targeted at an intended audience for an intended purpose if you want readers to actually read and understand how to perform their job functions well and safely.
Why should you attend?
Learn how to write successful and compliant SOPs with the help of quality assurance consultant Joy McElroy. She will show you how to produce well-written, succinct, readable SOPs that support the specific activities of your department, unit, or business. And she’ll explain the SOP mandates set forth by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other regulators. You’ll get an in-depth tutorial that includes tips for revising your own and others’ writing, correcting grammar, structuring the SOP appropriately, and adjusting your language for a particular audience and effect.
After attending this live webinar, you will be well prepared to produce effective SOPs and work instructions that meet federal standards and keep workers productive and safe. Plus, you’ll be able to use your newly refined skills to write and revise almost any kind of critical project document.
