Does any body by any chance have any views on the wearing of hearing aids in a food packaging environment. We recently had a visitor that had hearing aids and it has rasied the following points.
In particular the type that clip behind the persons ear. Should they be allowed in the packaing area? Does the hairnet provide sufficent protection in order to prevent the hearing or part of the aid aid falling of and ending in the packaging line? Is there any way of ensuring that it is safe to wear a hearing aid in the food area?
Obvioulsy you cannot discrimate against somebody that requires hearing aids but by the same token can you guarantee 100% safety.
Any views would be gratefully received.
