I need advice on the better route to take in this situation. We are a low risk warehouse but we have SQF certification for manufacturing because we pump product from trucks into silos for storage. It was brought to my attention that our current loading and unloading practices interfere with our pest prevention program. Currently, we have the truck park outside of the warehouse, we open the loading dock, and connect hoses to pump product. This means the loading dock door is open. Should we continue in this way to avoid environmental contamination inside by leaving the truck outside and risking pests coming in through the open door or should we bring the truck inside so that we can close the door? All that would be surrounding the truck would be product in sealed containers (the warehouse space) and a couple of feet from the pumps pulling into or from our silos. The truck would be off. Would we have to change our policies to clean the floors after every truck rather than once a week? Any advice is appreciated.
