Good morning to one and all,trust life is treating you well.

I am a having a senior moment writing a policy/procedure with regards to “food or product contact surfaces that have come into contact with blood or bodily fluids”. (1.33.1.5)

Not wishing to sound like a scrounging so and so but does anyone have an example they can show me or point me in the right direction.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Mick, something like this for a starter procedure.

1. Stop production
2. Get the person safe
3. Cordon off the area (nobody in or out)
4. Full clean up and sanitise the area
5. Product trace (recall, quarantine, destroy)
6. Validate all actions
7. Review after for improvements

You would need a record for all actions.

Obviously needs fleshing out, but should be enough to get the juices flowing. Posted Image

Regards,
Simon

Thanks Simon, it's a wonder what a couple of days off work does as I had inspiration over the weekend and came up with something close to what you have suggested.

You can get "Biohazard Spill Kits" fairly cheaply - get a couple of those just in case (get at least two because if you have to use one you won't have any at all until it is replaced).

Hi
The "old bodily fluids spillage procedure"

Take your glass breakage procedure, change glass to read, bodily fluid (vomit, blood, body part or whatever they have chosen to spill).
Expand slightly the procedure to encompass the route from the "point of spill" out of production to a safe area.
And it should be pretty much covered.

You can refine it with an emergency entry procedure.
After all the paramedics when they arrive are not going to change into 'whites', change footwear, or wash their hands, no matter how nicely you ask.

regards
