I need help closing a non-conformance from a supplier assurance audit.
NC- Pooling water was observed in the dry storage area. The pallet with dry materials was sitting in the pooling water.
This is what I have so far;
Root cause: The root cause of the pooling water is not known. This is not an area where pooling water is regularly observed (i.e., our trend analysis does not suggest the root cause is related to any internal activities). However, on the day of the audit, contractors were performing preventative maintenance on the air compressor which is located in close proximity to where the pooling water was found. We suspect that the pooling water was a result of the maintenance being performed on the air compressor. The HACCP coordinator is responsible for inspecting the floors for evidence of pooling water during the pre-operational inspection and once again mid-day during the daily production inspection. The HACCP Coordinator failed to identify the pooling water on the day of the audit.
Corrective Actions: Vacuum pumped the water. Re-trained HACCP Coordinator on Pre-Operational Inspection & Hygiene Code
Procedure and Production Inspection Procedure.
Preventative Actions: ??? I’m thinking in the future accompany contractors when they are preforming service. But what procedure would that belong on? Any other thoughts?
I’m open to any feedback, I’m looking to learn.
