Our plant has recently considered removing all hand air dyers after results from an external audit. We have done a risk assessment and cost analysis of removing all hand air dryers and replacing them with paper towel dispensers or placing the hand dryers with new filters that would be more sanitary.
Has anyone been through a similar situation and can give their advice? What was your outcome?
Is there anything that the SQF Code speaks to about hand dryers vs. paper towel? Is having a risk assessment required to back up your reasoning for having one method or another?
