I know that this topic has been presented in these forums before but I need some help with clarification. We are following a provincial (Canadian) regulation when it comes to our further processing meat plant and the reg states:
(5) No person who is engaged in the processing, packaging, labelling, handling or storing of a carcass, a part of a carcass or a meat product at a meat plant shall wear an object or use a substance that might fall into or otherwise contaminate the carcass, the part of the carcass or the meat product. O. Reg. 31/05, s. 53 (5).
Can we take this to let office workers and other management through the plant wearing their regular jewelry as they are not involved in the activities listed in the bullet? We have people who do not work on the floor coming inside to speak to the production workers, but they are never involved in anything to do with handling the meat products nor are they in the cooking room where raw product is exposed.
