Hello

 

A simple question I hope, I cannot find any reference as to the kind of office telephone allowed within a BRC pack house. Is it OK to have a cordless phone so the packhouse manager can use it on the floor or must telephones be kept in the actual office, I think it is OK as we can use a tablet for recording data on the floor, just want to make sure I am right.

 

Thank you :helpplease:

We have been BRC certified for 6 years and have never had any comment on the use of portable radios in the production facility so I don't think a portable phone would be an issue.

Hi mica,

 

Well, i suppose it's larger than an ear-ring. But definitely a Foreign Body.

Beware of Sod's Law.

Things to consider:  (1) any small parts that could dislodge and contaiminate product and (2) the phone would most likely be made of plastic and would need to be on your glass & brittle plastic inventory.  If dropped, would the phone shatter?

 

Along these same lines, our supervisor is also a volunteer fireman.  When he is on call, he carries a radio clipped to his belt with a mic clipped to shoulder. We have never evaluated this for food safety hazards and probably should.
