How has anyone secured the doors of their respective grain storage bins?  Does it pass SQF standards?

We added ladder guards and locks, or locks on bin doors. They are part of our weekly exterior check to make sure they are still in place.

I should have added that we have passed 4 BRC audits, and the BRC FSMA addendum with this security in place.

Most of our grain storage facilities use standard locks. A couple have added seals so that each time it is opened they must record breaking the seal and signing out a new seal. Two facilities have added electronic locks that work in conjuction with their online food defense system.
