Just a small question; we are working towards BRC but it could be relevant to all standards:
Anyway, do people with stubble / bald / shaven heads need to wear hair nets?! Thanks.

Interesting one, that open to misinterpretation. At what length does hair on a shaved head require covering? Is it down to the individual employee to establish the length of their hair?

Right or wrong i go for a blanket policy, where everyone wears a hair net and then it is simple with no confusion or opportunity for debate!

Dear D-D,

Thanks - I will of course go with the blanket rule to avoid disucssion or grey area. Thanks too Charles for digging out the old threads on this one.

Already answered and I'm sure I posted on the old threads but yes. The mob caps normally used are not only to prevent contamination from hair but also to discourage people from fiddling around with ears etc.

As you said, generally in quality management; grey area = bad. Keep it simple.

It comes down to one thing:
the rules within a company : i.e. if it states that employees must wear hair nets then 'Hair Nets they must wear! hair or not hair.

Just a small question; we are working towards BRC but it could be relevant to all standards:
Anyway, do people with stubble / bald / shaven heads need to wear hair nets?! Thanks.

Dear All,

Just a comment that any general rule perhaps should also clearly define the implementation aspects -

For example see these extracts -

In my opinion, I believe they should wear hair nets as they are exposed to the outside environment (by this i mean to say, outside your production facility) and there are chances of having hazards introduced to your food from their heads. The hair net will not eliminate such incident from happening but it can reduce the chances of it from happening.
