We have Sanitation log as well as pre-op & post op for each production cell, namely packaging, blending and milling cell. In blending and milling, we use various equipment for each activity (we might use a sifter in the am then milling machine in the afternoon) and the equipment is stored in an 'equipment storage' area when they are not in use. We have been including the machine sanitation as part of the cell sanitation. However my manager insisted on having a production log for each machine separately. For example: If we use a ribbon blender in blending, we will fill in a log for that on top of completing the room sanitation log. Then if the next production run in that particular room use a filler, then we will fill a separate form for it. I think it is super redundant, but he was advised by a good friend who is a food consultant that it is a way to go. Which way is the better way to go : a) 1 daily record per production cell that includes all the equipment used b) Daily Mulitple record - for each equipment used plus the room sanitation record Thoughts?

Hopefully your  manager is not overly influenced by this person otherwise I see mountains of paper being generated.

 

Keep paperwork to minimum.

Couldn't agree more with Glenn

 

A simple N/U  (not used) is sufficient for each piece not being used  (put the acronym in the header or footer)

 

Where I am now, the sanitation record is 10 flippin pages!!!!!!!!!!   Guess how many it will be?  4, with pre op included on the same record!

 

Consolidation is the only to way move forward

Determine the absolute minimum amount of paperwork that you must generate while still maintaining your external and internal standards.
