We have microfiber rags that are used by maintenance, sanitation, and production. Production and sanitation are using one color while maintenance is a separate color. I have been noticing operators and mechanics putting the rags in their back pockets and that is how they carry them. I am addressing with production, but maintenance is in disagreement that this poses any sort of food safety issue. I tried to explain that the rag could fall out and potentially end up in the product stream, also it isn't sanitary to be carrying it that way.
Looking for some thoughts and maybe a different perspective on this. Am I taking this too far, or does it not matter?
