Looking for a bit of advice....
We recently had our BRCGS Packaging audit and during the inspection of the changing rooms the auditor noted one of the lockers had the keys present.
He then proceeded to open the locker to inspect the contents.
My question is are auditors entitled to open lockers? If so then can this be standard practice for the company to perform?
We have an issue of employees storing food etc in lockers so it would certainly help with the 'threat' of performing random inspections....
Thanks in advance
It was standard routine practice when I was an Auditor to randomly open lockers and most companies make lockers subject to inspection.
And, of course your Auditor can open your lockers and inspect them.
And, yes, this is a standard practice for most companies.
Just add a note into your locker room practices, GMPs etc about what can and what can not be stored in lockers and even though I doubt that legally you are required to do so, you may want to add that because the lockers are the property of the company they are subject to inspection with or without the employees permission or presense.
