Hello,

We want to build a forklift charging and storage room. Currently electric forklifts only travel through warehouses (raw materials and packed product) but if we build this room where we want they will travel for storage through a product packaging room. We produce dry low risk products. Is this a problem for hygiene?

With it being low risk, it's likely ok...however from an allergen perspective, are there any cross-contamination concerns that you have reviewed?

What could possibly transfer from the vehicle to the room and present a contamination issue and what might the tires track in as well?

IF the vehicles are used outside the potential goes up.
