Hi all, I understand that non-perfumed hand soap should be used in food production areas to avoid tainting food. Just wondering what about toilets? Can perfumed/fragrance hand soap be use in toilets areas? A scenario which can happen would be - production staff go to the toilet, wash their hands with perfumed hand soap, sanitise their hand, and goes back into production area. Thank you.

You will have to be very careful with this - I personally don't allow it. 

 

I presume if somebody goes to the toilet and washes their hands, they have to wash their hands again when entering the production area with non-perfumed / food grade soap?

 

This is the case for us - but i bet 8/10 people won't wash their hands with the food grade soap immediately after washing with the perfumed soap. 

 

You would also need extra control in place for the perfumed soap - I would not have this stored with your food grade chemicals. 

 

An example I have is - our office cleaner brought in fairy liquid to use in the staff room. Although this is for the staff room there is just no control over it. 

 

I have always been told you have to make everything 'idiot proof' (this is not having low expectations of staff - you just never know)

NO

further more---why would you want to order more than 1 soap anyway

 

Easier to use the same product in the entire facility

 

Hand your employees really should be washing again, not just sanitizing

 

Cause A) it's the right thing to do

            B) most regulatory and GFSI bodies require it

            C) they have touched things since washing hands

            D) you cannot verify they are actually washing the in bathroom  like you can when they are washing hands when they enter production

 

most importantly because -its gross

NO

For all of the above reasons plus how would explain the difference to an auditor?
