Hand Sanitizer Strength Verification


Best Answer Charles.C, 20 March 2021 - 04:44 PM

Hi Charles,

 

The Standard states/asks:  Are there records (with corrective actions) that show antimicrobial strength testing of hand/foot/tool dip stations, and are there stock check and replenishment records for gel and spray stations?

 

Hi TJW,

 

Thks info.

I deduce you are referring to this -

 

5.13.06: Are there records (with corrective actions) that show anti-microbial strength testing of hand/foot/tool dip stations, and are there stock check and replenishment records for gel and spray stations?

Total compliance (3 points): The company should have a log sheet for evaluating the hand and/or foot and/or tool dip (where appropriate) stations
solution strength. The log sheet should include target antimicrobial concentration (ppm) and frequency of verification. The figures recorded must
match the type and graduation of the testing system being used. An omission would include where an out of spec concentration is recorded but
there is no record of corrective actions. Foot dips are required in processing audits operations (see 5.04.14). Any operation with hand, foot or tool
dips is required to keep monitoring records (uncontrolled dips are a hazard). Where hand gel or spray stations using prepared solutions are used,
there should be monitoring logs indicating stations are regularly checked to confirm units are stocked and operational

 

 

Seems reasonably explicit. I deduce operational data is minimally required to be shown as adequate.

Hello, I'm new to Primus and was wondering if it would be required to verify the strength of hand sanitizer (gel/spray directly from the manufacture, no mixing at the plant)?  Thank you!

No, your own verification is not required as to the strength of an established type/brand.

Hi TJW,

 

So what does the Standard say, (if anything relevant) ?
