We have had a glove use policy implemented for some time within our SQF certified packaging facility.
Individuals with our company have visited other certified food safety 'packaging' companies and have seen that the use of gloves had not been implemented.
What has been other members' experience been with the use of gloves in food contact packaging manufacturing? Has a strong hand washing program sufficed to not require the use of gloves? Has anyone performed a risk assessment on this subject?
What are thoughts on hand sanitizer replacing washing with appropriate soaps?
Our glove program is solid and well institutionalized. But we are also seeing a significant cost to this program.
Let me know your thoughts - thanks!!
