Hi,

 

Looking for some guidance on creating a master cleaning schedule. We are distributors and have our own packaging unit where we pack dry beans and lentils. I have pasted a sample cleaning schedule and need your feedback.Attached File  cleaning records.PNG   39.65KB   18 downloads

 

Thank you

you've listed an upper level, but not the stairs to it

and periodic cleaning? Have you determined what the means?  GFSI's do not like that verbiage, is it bi-annually or quarterly etc

 

 

Perhaps monthly checks of pest devices isn't enough????  They should be checked weekly for proper location and monthly for any pest evidence

 

Other than that it looks pretty good to me


Because we always have is never an appropriate response!

All the best,

The problem I have with things like this is that it's not actually a "schedule". It looks more like a "cleaning record".

Each cleaning activity should have a periodicity next to it, showing how often the item should be completed. It should have a defined date when the item should be completed, either week beginning or week ending and a place to enter the actual date of completion, or if not completed, some notation as to why.

Also, I'm a fan of specificity. What exactly does "Dry Storage Areas" entail? If you have a SSOP that spells out exactly what must be done to ensure the area is "clean", that's one thing. But if you don't, how can you show that the task was completed adequately?

I see that you have weekly and monthly groupings, but again, specificity. If something is done "monthly" does that mean every 30 days or 4 weeks? Or just some arbitrary time in the month?

 

It's been years since I kept a manual MCS, but this example from AIB can easily be "Excel'd".

I would suggest to add columns for the frequency of clean, who's responsible and verified by.

Hi Marshall.

 

Thank you very much for all the valuable inputs. It will be very helpful in making a schedule. My intention is to create one which the warehouse guys will be able to fill out on a daily basis without any hassle. 

 

This is a new establishment and we are yet to complete SOPs and SSOPs. Our warehouse contains prepackaged food products with longer shelf life stored in ambient temperature.

 

Thanks for the template !

 

Regards,

Vimala

vimlab, i think there is a minimum number of posts you have to make in order to use the PM function

Cleaning Schedule is like a to-do list calendar. It may or may not have the actual compliance vs the schedules
