Hi all, so I've been working through with our Glass and Brittle plastics for our food manufacturing plant. We have a nice in depth register, states the location code, location name, item name, whether it's a plastic or glass, risk to product safety, the current condition, and if broken what risk is it to the product safety. We also have a register of pictures with all damages included. Now the images is what takes a very large part of the time. Any cracks to any degree we take pictures of. How important is these images? We have 221 items we monitor across the factory. I've considered changing these pictures to be more broad of the location and highlight where exact items are, and looking through our SQF manual, it states
All glass objects or other brittle materials in food packaging handling/contact zones shall be listed in a glass register including details of their location.
As long as we have a detailed register I believe this should cover this aspect as a whole. And start only using images as a point of area reference, not to so much highlight the exact damage to an item.
