Hi All:

What are the requirements for contractors and visitors for exmaple with thier protective clothing.

If pest control contractors come in what requirements should the production factory have of them should they be wearing our protective lab coats even if they are dealing with the traps etc.

 

thanks

It depends.  If they are entering production areas then they should comply with your policy for protective coverings and hair restraint, etc.

Yes,  All visitors and contractors that enter your GMP areas should wear hairnets/beardnets as applicable based on your risk analysis I'm sure you've done.

 

Otherwise the requirements are based on your perceived risk to the product.  I've seen places where all visitors/contractors had to wear lab coats or disposable smocks and I've seen places where only visitors had to wear those and contractors were allowed to wear work uniforms as long as they were visibly clean.

 

Typically all visitors/contractors had to wear close toed shoes and pants or jeans, no shorts.  Things of that nature.

 

You have to have a meeting with your food safety team and discuss what you want then communicate/train your visitors/contractors on what is expected.  This can be just telling them what to wear and then having them read and sign off on a visitor/contractor GMP acknowledgement sheet when they arrive at the plant when they sign in (the should have to sign in and show ID so you know they are who they say they are dependent on your site security policy and as applicable by your food safety standard.)

Visitors have to comply with your security, GMP, SSOP, hygienic zones, color coding, maintenance policy, and anything else I have failed to mention.

I make one exception for visitors in regards to lab coats for maintenance when not in production, and product/packaging is properly secured.

Our PCOs have to comply with all of our GMPs regarding hair nets, footwear and outer garments.
