The guidance document for SQF version 7.1 states:
"High vehicle traffic areas are also required to be effectively sealed to prevent dusty conditions"
"Where employee amenities are external to the site, the access to the amenities must be sealed, and should be covered to allow for weather conditions"
My main question:
We currently have a gravel driveway and employee parking area. Trucks use the same driveways. Does this mean that we would need to pave our driveways and parking areas?
Also, a smoking area provided for the employees would need to be covered?
Thanks in advance. This could be a deal-breaker and I have a consultant coming in NEXT WEEK. Don't want to waste money with a consultant if we would be required to pave the parking area. That is money we have not accounted for in the overall budget.
