Can anyone help me to understand the AIB requirement of:

“Service checks are performed on all units on a weekly basis during the active season and a monthly basis during colder seasons or as dictated by climate. These checks include:

• Emptying collection devices

• Cleaning the units

• Repairs

• Checks for tube breakage

At the moment factory I work for cover this by having pest controller performing checks on EFK every week from end of March till end of October. For the cost of it I could probably employ pest controller full time!

I don’t think it is needed as we have very low counts – product fully enclosed, etc.  Seems like there is not an option to perform risk assessment to say it is not needed. L

I am stuck as to how tackle this one and still pass AIB.

Any help is welcome.

Perhaps have a dedicated employee do the job once a month when the pest control company is not checking them?

I do this weekly at my facility.  Maintenance replaces the glue boards on the ones that do not have the electronic grid.  It does not take a lot of time, and it is better than paying the pest control people to do it.
