Hi all,

 

Looking to get opinions on the kind of apron to use in a veg processing room. We currently use plastic aprons which are wiped and sanitized at the end of each shift for re-use the following day but I am looking in to the possibility of using poly cotton ones that would be controlled by the same company that launders our overalls. This would undoubtedly incur a greater cost to us but it is something I'm willing to make a case for if it is worth making the change.

 

What are your thoughts?

 

Regards,

 

Andy

First, what is your base reason for considering the change?

 

Also, what are the end of shift chemical/water/cleaning costs and associated labor costs now?


Kind regards,

Hi Glenn, the only real reason for consideration is better practice, if that is indeed what it would be deemed as.To me it just seems that garments controlled by a professional laundering company would impress an auditor/visitor more than plastic ones wiped down and sanitised at the end of each shift with the odd random swab sent to the lab to show how clean we are making them. I might be (and I guess am hoping to be) wrong with no need to make the change, hence the asking for opinions of others.

 

Regards,
