please look in the pre-selection of the service provider what kind of "uniforms" will be treated there. From food companies only? Certification? HACCP?
If a service provider is treating uniforms from hospitals not only the procedure is of importance but a clear separation of the areas and employees.
We have excluded such service providers.
Micro testing is a prerequite (validation perfomed before with contaminated test items -> microbes or "dirt" for each fabric type)
Are the uniforms company owned or rented? -> last type service provider will do validations on "their" type of uniforms)
We are using rented uniforms which are personalized by barcode, single packed at delivery to our plants.
How and where minor repairs on clothing are performed?
-> needles -> each emplyee doing this work has 5 needles (-> use and number morning/evening documented)
-> lightning -> covered (glass and brittle plastic doc)
In general not an easy topic.
