Is there a specific uniform policy for the FSSC 22000 standard? Can the employees wear their uniforms outside the production areas? This question is being ask for a facility that produces plastic bags.  The employee never comes into direct contact with the food contact surface of the bag. I believe this process could be considered low risk? Thank you for taking time on reviewing this question.  Any feedback definitely appreciated.

 

 

 

Thank you.

Hi 022514STO,

 

The requirements for protective clothing are specified in ISO/TS 22002-4:2013 Prerequisite programmes on food safety -- Part 4: Food packaging manufacturing:

 

13.4 Workwear and protective clothing

Personnel who work in or enter into production or storage areas shall wear work clothing that is fit for purpose, clean and in good condition.

Where applicable to the food safety risk, workwear shall not be used for any other purpose and shall not be stored in the same locker as personal clothing.

Workwear shall provide adequate coverage so that hair, perspiration and loose items cannot contaminate the packaging.

Where gloves are used for packaging contact, they shall be clean and in good condition.

NOTE   Use of disposable gloves or hand sanitizers is preferred.

Personal protective equipment, where required, shall be designed to prevent packaging contamination and shall be maintained in hygienic condition.

 

Kind regards,

 

Tony
