I work in a fast-paced, semi-automated bottling plant. The filling area is enclosed and operated by a bottling operator, thus if a bottle breaks or bursts inside that area, the system is set to deliberately under-fill (reject) bottles on the conveyor before and after the burst, as well as to do a spray rinse of the area.
How does one validate and verify that such a procedure is effective? it would be impossible and uneconomical to place the whole area and personnel on hold just because a bottle broke, (which can happen frequently), as per the normal/strict glass breakage procedures and templates I've seen.
Any recommendations, examples or templates would be much appreciated?
