Hi, my company is doing seafood processing and we do hygiene monitoring such as swab test on worker's hands etc. I have a problem to fulfill IFS ver 6 requirement clause 3.4.9 "based on hand analysis and assessment of associated risks, there shall be a program to control the effectiveness of hand hygiene." I have the existing schedule for hand swab but i dont keep any risk assessment on this, thus anyone can share their risk assessment? or any opinion on this subjecyt?

Hi daisy,

 

I'm not a user of IFS but here is a simple suggestion -

 

Generic Suggestion for Low Risk Process

 

Hazard – pathogenic micro. contamination via hands contacting food

Control measure – effective handwashing PRP (inter alia)

monitoring –

(a) visual at daily start-up, etc

(b) micro. evaluation of hands (average) of 3 randomly selected employees / month via APC measurement

Acceptable Micro Level after cleaning, APC  not > 100cfu/cm2

Corrective Action – Follow Up/Re-training/Verification for unsatisfactory cases.

Sampling frequency to be doubled in case of  100% failure for any monthly sampling or average failure rate   >20% for any 3 month period. Together with additional training sessions.

 

Increase basic frequency(s)/tests for High Risk Process.
