Hi sarah,

 

11.10.1.1 The grounds and area surrounding the premises shall be maintained to minimize dust and be kept free of waste or accumulated debris so as not to attract pests and vermin.

11.10.1.2 Paths, roadways and loading and unloading areas shall be maintained so as not to present a hazard to the food safety operation of the premises.

11.10.1.3  Surroundings  shall  be  kept  neat  and  tidy  and  not  present  a  hazard  to  the  hygienic  and  sanitary operation of the premises. 

11.10.1.4 Paths from amenities leading to facility entrances are required to be effectively sealed.

 

What does it mean?

Unkempt surrounds (including the accumulation of unused equipment, pallets, bins, drums or waste) can provide harborage for vermin and other pests and in turn pose a serious hazard to the hygienic operation of a food premises.  

What do I have to do?

The provision of lawn and landscaping is effective for sealing large traffic areas. High vehicle traffic areas are also required to be effectively sealed to prevent dusty conditions. 

 

Exterior construction projects that impact sealed areas should be reviewed, and controls established on a

temporary basis during the project timeline.

 

Where employee amenities are external to the site, the access to the amenities must be sealed, and should be covered to allow for weather conditions.

 

 

I suggest X1.4 is a corollary of X1.3

I suggest it is (a) a vision of SQF Elysium, (b) you assess the pathway for (hopefully lack of) hygienic "risk", eg "contamination".


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C
