I work for a beverage manufacturer and we are SQF Certified. Right now we use a uniform company to provide us clean work pants and shirts for the production employees however the cost of this service is getting a little out of hand. I'm trying to explore other options that would be acceptable for SQF and FDA.
We were thinking about providing production employees with enough shirts and pants for the week, plus back ups if they get dirty, and have them take their uniforms home at the end of the week to wash. We would require a clean uniform at the beginning of their shift and the shift supervisor would verify and document that all workers have clean uniforms.
I was wondering if anyone does something like this where employees wash their own uniforms and store their clean uniforms in their work lockers?
Any input would help! Thanks!
