Hello everyone,

Can anyone help me by giving ideas, suggestions, and a template for me to prepare a glass policy in my factory. I understand and am aware of some stuff like shatterproof, diffusers, escalation procedures but was thinking it would be useful if I have a look at a existing glass policy. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks a lot

Cheers!

Dear julie,

Welcome to the forum ! :welcome:

I think maybe you meant "procedures" rather than policy ? Anyway the 2 links below are relevant to each case. There are probably other threads here also if you search a little.

Dear Cathy,

Very interesting find with many (generally applicable) links into the US regulatory scene and other related materials. :thumbup:
(I took the liberty of adding a missing vowel to yr quoted website name)

Never seen the "IKE (Interactive Knowledge Exchange)'s" and the Harry Potter Time Line before :smile:

A few comments on the (example) portions of the purchasable SOP's -

"Operational Sanitation Attendant" SOP - that's a new one ??

6.2. On a daily frequency all thermometers used to measure temperatures associated with a CCP of cold temperatures is verified at 30°F for accuracy


Why?, and how would you accurately maintain a reference temperature of 30degF ?

6.8. Maintain the temperature of the water at 160°F at all times during verification by allowing the hot plate top and water to equilibrate to that temperature.


Similar comment.

Sadly, didn't see any direct site links to "glass policy" though (perhaps surprisingly?, "rats" are there ok), I guess some more internal searching required.

Rgds / Charles.C

Kind Regards,

To be honest I didn't find the site Cathy linked to useful at all. Seems like a commercial site where all docs, labels stickers must be purchased and quite expensive too. I could not find a glass policy or procedure. Cathy can you direct us to the glass docs requested by the thread starter here and if so are they also free to download? If not I wouldn't recommend the site to members as there are plenty of free ones here for glass and almost everything else and if it's not here then I'm sure someone wil be willing to share freely. It does give an idea though to make a much better library of the documents available here.

Regards,
Simon

Sorry all - I didn't see glass on the site either ! It was not what I thought it might be.

About those temperature examples. I have seen some companies that check calibration using a certified thermometer in water held at the temperature within the range of use, and comparing reading of the thermometer to be checked with that of the certified one. I'm not sure why they chose 30F as a cold temp. I could better understand 160F since that's in the range of appropriate cook temps. I guess we'd have to see the whole thing to understand it better.

Here is a simple glass policy. Feel free to add / refine if I've missed anything.

Glass Policy

1. All lighting should be shatter proof or protected by covers. Only PET sleeved shatter proof tubes to be fitted for all the tube-lights.

2. No glass bulb/tube to be placed near any machinery. Any unwanted glass near the machinery in the form of lighting or any other form should be removed.

3. Remove any glass from the factory that is not required.

4. All remaining glass should be logged and checked on a frequency determined by risk assessment to ensure no breakage or loss has taken place.

5. In case of any incident related to glass, a responsible person must be placed in charge of the clean-up operation to ensure no glass can contaminate any other part of the factory. Any material contaminated must be destroyed.

In addition to the points, mentioned by Simon, you can check the BRC-Food or IFS standard. BRC gives some ideas about the content of a glass-policy and a glass breakage procedure.

glass procedure: procedure shall include as a minimum:
- list of items detailing location, number, type and condition;
- recorded checks of condition of items carried out at specified frequency based on risk assessment

Glass breakage procedure: detailing the actions to be taken in case of breakage of glass, brittle, or hard plastic include the following:
- quarentining the producst and production area that were potentially affected;
- cleaning the production area;
- inspection the production area and authorising to continue production
'- changing of workwear and inspection of footwear;
- specify those staff authorised to carry out above points;
- recording the breakage incident.


Kind Regards,

Madam A. D-tor

Hi Abdul can you replace the file it appears to be missing. It may have been lost with all of the issues we've had with the virus and uloading backups. Your post was made right in the middle of the chaos and the file could have been deleted.

I'd like to compare the number of recorded glass breakages occurring in a production line working with glass jars.
Ours is getting a lot better but I'm not sure what would be considered "normal" or "acceptable".
Also any details on forms and register and what they look like.
In the haccp food programme manual I have it refers to a r11.1 form which I will have to ask my quality manager about.

Debating if our glass contamination risk assessment for lunch room area  is sound.

Historically no issues of glass breakage in this area. Employees entrance and lunch room are segregated from production.

Shatter proof lights in the lunch room.  

Not feasible to control what containers people bring in lunch room. We`ve concluded low risk and  no control required.

Glass windows ?

Brittle Plastic in use ?

 

Last comment sounds like defensive FS.
