I am reviewing our allergen PPE procedure as my predessesor has made it as confusing and complicated.
We produce a range of cakes a vast majority have allergens except for around 5 items that do not contain any allergens.
Currently staff wear red PPE when they handle an allergen, but as only red sleeves are available to staff they use these red sleeves regardless.
My thought is to change the procedure so staff wear blue when handling allergen containing product and only wear red when they handle the non allergen product.( I know colour is irrelevant)
So the focus would be on protecting the non allergen product from being contaminated, and when the non allergen product is being produced they can be identified as such and staff are aware to avoid the are they are producing the non allergen product.
