Hi Shanavaz

 

The short answer is yes as long as all hairs are fully covered with beard cover.

Hi Shanavaz,

 

what is THE food and what is THE pharma industry?

I have been working in pharma in Germany and it was not prohibited to have a tutored beard. There are other risk than hairs in production of e.g. parenterals.

In pharma you have a clear zoning where an air quality (e.g.number of particles of different sizes in µm range, micro in air) which is fixed. With increasing zoning level the protection clothing becomes more and more high tech (-> no particle emission) and the level of free available skin is reduced to very small areas around your eyes. So, the question is...what is the risk and what is the protection in place.
