I'm in the process of obtaining a level III certification and trying to retro-fit a building into SQF requirements.
A couple production rooms in the facility are lacking floor drains and plumbing. I've got to ask the critical question of whether or not anyone has experienced this and/or had any success in making it work.
As it states in the SQF Code: 18.104.22.168 Floors should be sloped to floor drains at gradients suitable to allow the effective removal of all overflow or waste water under normal working conditions.
To date, this facility has scored in the high 90's in third party audits, passed several state and federal audits, and undergone numerous customer audits that have given high praises for facilities care.
Has anyone ever established a no-drain program? Would a floor machine that cleans, sanitizes, and vacuums the water all at once suffice?
Thank you in advance.
