We are low risk ambient facility producer of snack foods (tortilla chips mainly). We are working to revamp our uniform policy under BRC due to the high cost of damaged uniforms. The issue we've had is our current service provider is unable to tie a damaged uniform to a name, so we are unable to charge careless employees for damage.
We were thinking of allowing our packers (no risk for product contamination) to wear company provided, self-laundered t-shirts, while the rest of the production workers wear smocks as usual.
I suppose this is a two-part question.
1) Do you see any issue with the t-shirts since this has been identified as a no-risk area?
2) Do you know of any companies that are able to tie a smock to a name so we can keep track of who is damaging the uniforms?
Thanks in advance
