I just want to make sure I'm not going mad here. I am preparing a low risk manufacturing business for their first BRC audit and rewriting the changing procedure and personal hygiene policy to reflect the increase in standards.
The site has toilets which open out into the changing area (i.e. not directly into production) and there is currently no guidance on how to use the toilets in relation to changing (or using the changing room handwash sink prior to re-entry). As a business with strong environmental credentials I do not want to use more of the disposable mob caps than is necessary (without compromising food safety of course) so in my mind keeping hair nets on whilst using the toilet feels like the right thing to do. The rest of the protective clothing would be removed. Am I mad?
Just to add - the lunch room is NOT near the toilets and so staff are free to go to the toilet when they wish, not just during breaks.
