Hello to all! Looking for some advice, as I am outnumbered over here at the company I am currently employed with...
I work in a Fruit packing facility and Upper Management is wanting to install about 14 Bradley AV30 Soap, Sink and Dryer units right outside the main entrance into the grading/packing location.
The install of additional sinks is what I have proposed as to hand washing is limited to restrooms only.
I hate to say but I'm slightly opposed to air hand dryers..but upper management finds these to be more appealing and have informed me that they use less time other than the old fashioned paper towel use. I suggested that a floor supervisor participate in the demonstration and without any influence from myself, she stated that "the system is longer and does not complete the job (in comparison to the paper towels)."
I questioned the sales rep as to other food handling facilities having this sort of unit, his response was "none".
This facility is SQF level 3 certified and under Module 10.3.2 Hand Washing states (10.3.2.2) Hand wash basins shall be constructed of stainless steel or similar non-corrosive material and as a minimum supplied with:
(key) iii. Paper towels in a hands free cleanable dispenser.
Would the install of these units violate Module 10.3.2?
Attached is a photo of the unit they WILL BE purchasing.
