I would like to know from somebody who has their company audited by AIB already, if it is allowed to have a hot-&-cold water dispenser inside an office without a pantry area?
My company is a 3rd party logistics provider to a meat processing plant (we manage the storages and dispatch). Our office is situated in a general access area, connected but outside the production and logistics facilities. our client company has their office nearby (20 meters away with regulars-only secured access) and has their own pantry. We have 25 people in the office doing admin works, and are not in direct contact with the processed meat products. and sometimes our office holds meetings also since we have a conference table. however, we were advised to remove our sole water dispenser and all drinking containers due to "compliance". Please help to clarify if we could retain the water dispenser, since the canteen is quite far and a bit bothersome to go to if we want to re-hydrate.
Thank you in advance!
