Hello Everybody, hope all well.
We are food processor based in EU and designing new staff facilities.
Engineers have suggested new layout for hand wash station.
Food handler arrives at turnstile.
Turnstile will not let them through unless they place their hands into slot and receive soap.
They then go through turnstile and wash hands at sink.
Is this acceptable for food safety, BRC and IFS Food standard?
I don’t particularly like this procedure as you should wet your hands first, then take soap to create lather.
You don’t put shampoo into dry hair!
This turnstile method, once you add water it doesn’t really create lather, majority of soap goes down drain. Am I wrong?
They sent a YouTube clip of it in operation in factory, so its obviously is acceptable procedure and new design for Hand wash stations going forward, I presume.
Am I too picky/old fashioned and should just allow this new procedure they are suggesting? After all, they are experts in factory design.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions and advise.
