Hi,

 

Some of our managers are not buttoning up the overalls and taking the advantage of our hygiene policy

 

Because it doesn't say anything in our hygiene procedure, so they don't have to follow it

 

are there any reference to good practice or standards which says you have button up your overall?

 

Thanks

Here is what we have :

 

1.                  INTRODUCTION:

 

The highest standards of cleanliness, personal hygiene and housekeeping are required at *********, Inc. as we supply high quality, safe snack foods to the public.  As food handlers, we have a responsibility to our customers to maintain high standards of food safety.  To ensure only safe, high quality products are produced, employees must follow the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP’s) Policy. 

 

2.                  SCOPE:

 

It is the responsibility of all involved personnel at every level of the company to act immediately if a risk of violating this policy is detected.  Management is accountable for compliance with this policy and the Vice President – CFO/COO has final authority concerning any GMP issue.

 

 

2.1              Clothing must be clean at the start of operation and kept reasonably clean during operation. All clothing consisting of snaps must be utilized as they were manufactured to be used. Gowns, Jackets, Coats, and Overalls must be snapped or buttoned up fully to prevent personal injury and to ensure all articles are intact (not to contaminate the product or add a food safety issue) CCPs.

Hi CG,

 

Is there a reason for the unbuttoning, eg environment unreasonably hot ?

 

If not, think Contamination.

 

See attachment, section (b)(1) -

 

Attached File  21 cfr 110 GMP - personnel.pdf   248.88KB   23 downloads

 

If this is not clear enough, revise your Hygiene Policy.

 

It's called Senior Management Committment.

 

Alternatively, perhaps even more proactive, as per BRC7 -

Protective clothing shall be available that:
•  is provided in sufficient numbers for each employee
•  is of suitable design to prevent contamination of the product (as a minimum containing no external
pockets above the waist or sewn-on buttons)

•  fully contains all scalp hair to prevent product contamination
•  includes snoods for beards and moustaches, where required, to prevent product contamination.

 


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C
