In all the places I have worked at, it was a standard practice to write the date on a piece of plastic used to catch any leaks from the ceiling or other overhead pipes, etc.  The piece of plastic also has to be replaced daily.  We have this in our procedure for Maintenance: Construction and Sanitation Policy.

 

Today, a question was posed to me: Where is it written (other than our own procedure) that plastic used for temporary repair must be dated and replaced daily?

 

Can anyone help?  Thank you!

WHAAAATTTTTT  

 

That's crazy (and also replacing daily is a bit much)   you can get the ceiling leak covers that have a drain built in..............drain goes to drain voila   you've bought your self some time to address the root cause

 

 

BTW, the ceiling leaks should also be addresses via condensation monitoring if you're not already (which will also include dedicated ceiling wipers who keep track of where and how often) then you use the $$$ that costs to argue for a permanent fix!


Because we always have is never an appropriate response!

Hello, may be in a client check list....

 

 

Also, look at BRC V8 4.7.3 interpretation guideline:

Temporary repairs Temporary repairs must be suitable, kept to a minimum and used only in an emergency. They must be controlled (i.e. documented and notied to a shi leader) to ensure that the safety or legality of product is not jeopardised, and a system must be in place to demonstrate that a permanent repair is planned within a dened timescale (e.g. a works order).
The Standard is not prescriptive regarding the timescales for permanent repairs, as what is practicable will vary from site to site and according to the nature of the repair and any associated product safety risks. Typically, a full permanent repair is expected as soon as a replacement piece is available, or as soon as the line can be shut down. In all cases, the expectation is that the safety and legality of the product will be maintained in the interim.
In an organisation with a strong food safety culture, production sta should be knowledgeable about food safety, be empowered and feel ownership of compliance with the Standard so that they feel condent about informing the relevant individual or department when a repair or adjustment needs to be made.
 
so, there is not a frequency, but a logical approach
best regards
Leila
