1/can someone give a clear interpretation of the sentence: '...handwashing facilities shall be sited at the entrance to the production area.'
We just had an external audit and the auditor gave us a major remark because we do not have handwashing facilities inside the production area immediately at the doors coming into production area!
But the toilets, with handwashing facility, are situated right next to the entrance door going into the production area! And at each working place handwashing facility is also avalable. All with the required warm water, soap, towels, ... as specified in 4.8.1 of BRC Iop.
Additional, at the inside of the production site, at each entrance door, dispensers with disinfectant product is avalable!
+ in our instructions to staff and visitors about hygiene, handwashing before entering production area has been mentionned...
2/The auditor also wants us to prove everyone entering the production site has clean hands, free of bacteria!
Are these fair points, or is this auditor simply overreacting...?!
Thank you to anyone replying...
