After reading the forum for a number of years now the time has come for my first post.
Apologies if I have duplicated anything but I ran a search and didn't find anything previously posted about my question.
I have a question regarding 4.8.5 - Environmental Monitoring for Footwear Control.
The standard says that:
"There shall be an effective control of footwear to prevent the introduction of pathogens into high-care areas. This may be by a controlled change of footwear before entering the area or by the use of controlled and managed boot-wash facilities.
A programme of environmental monitoring shall be established to assess the effectiveness of footwear controls."
What do others have in place to comply with this requirement? What would be environmental testing that could assess the effectiveness of footwear controls?
