I am going to be creating our companies Chemical Control Policy. I am not sure what specifically is required in this Policy and could really use some guidance. If you have an example Policy or a list of items which need to be identified and addressed in such a policy, would greatly appreciate sharing!

Hello, the following may help:

 

A documented chemical control program is in place and implemented to ensure only chemicals approved for use in food production facilities are purchased and used. 
 
Primary and secondary containers for non-food chemicals are accurately and legibly labeled and personnel are trained in the correct usage and handling of these chemicals.
 
Current Safety Data Sheets (SDS) or local equivalent are available for all non-food chemicals used at this facility (e.g. pesticides, sanitation, maintenance, and food contact sanitation, etc.). The documents are available in languages understood by staff and employees understand how to access these Safety Data Sheets or applicable chemical documentation.
 
The chemical approval program is audited periodically for effectiveness and the audits are documented.
 
Functional eye wash stations are located in close proximity to areas when chemicals are stored or used and the eye wash stations are audited periodically for functional effectiveness.
 
Secondary containment is in place for chemicals stored on site.
 
A spill control program is in place with the relevant procedures for the clean up and disposal of the chemicals and control material.
 
Employees handling chemicals have been trained on the spill control procedures and training records maintained.
 
Procedures include disposition of nearby raw materials, packaging or finished products that may be affected by the chemical spill.
 
Approved chemical list shall identify chemical, SDS reference, storage locations, intended use, areas of use, etc.  There is a map that identifies all approved chemical storage and work-in-progress locations.
 
best regards,
Leila
