I am hoping for your help in coming up with a procedure / policy for control of engineering tools with regards to allergens.
Each engineer has his own tool kit and the tools used on each breakdown / maintenance job are different depending on what is being done. Also as we have a number of lines that are the same it is not financially feasable to have a unique allergen toolkit, again the tools used depend on the breakdown.
In an example scenario the engineer attends a breakdown on a piece of machinery that is manufacturing a product containing allergens. Even if the kit doesn' t come into direct contact with the product it is likley that the engineer does, or that there is operator transfer to the area he is working on and the tools being used. Following this he is called to a breakdown on a another line. Tthe procedure we need therefore must be quick and easy in order for it to be complied with as there is always a level of urgency for repair but it does still need to be effective at removing allergens and ideally verifiable!
As you can see I am getting all tangled up in this, does anyone have an example procedure I can have a look at and any comments would be very gratefully received!
