Medical Screening and Protective Clothing Requirements within the Food Industry.
Staff have a key role to play in the prevention of food contamination. As well as their basic understanding of food safety, more specific areas of medical fitness and their clothing standards may have an impact. This Breakfast Club will focus on these two areas, both as far as Good Manufacturing Practice but also the requirements of Quality Management Systems, including BRC Global Standard for Food Safety. Questions to be answered include, what is best practice with regards to medical screening, including Fitness to Return to Work, and what is the most effective method of making employees aware of the types of infection, disease or condition which would prevent a person working with open food? There will be a discussion of effective ways for employees, visitors and contractors to notify the business relevant infections, diseases or other condition which they may be suffering from. Protective clothing requirements will be discussed, including how should effective clothing management be monitored, criteria for effective laundering control, ‘foot-fall’ contamination, environmental monitoring and identification of clothing between Low Risk and High Risk/High Care.
