Because a failure in sanitation procedures can result in tainted product being released into the marketplace, there is so much at stake for both your company and its customers. When it comes to plant sanitation, you do not want to leave anything to chance. FSS Food Sanitation can help you create a Master Sanitation Schedule that most effectively utilizes your personnel, sanitation chemical supplies, equipment, and other plant resources.
Master Sanitation Schedules document each cleaning and sanitation action taken on a consistent basis. Some of the contents of the schedule are pre-defined for you, for example, when there is an industry standard, regulatory requirement, or manufacturer's schedule for a particular piece of equipment. Other entries on the sanitation schedule require customized development and vary according to your plant and its specific needs.
Developing a Master Sanitation Schedule is a vital component of plant sanitation because, without one, all necessary sanitation tasks are unlikely to be completed properly or in a timely manner, if at all. For a plant sanitation schedule to be effective, consistency is paramount. Incomplete or late completion of sanitation procedures can mean QC problems, lost productivity, USDA sanctions, or even the need to initiate a product recall. Defects in your plant sanitation program or Master Sanitation Schedule increase your company's risk of a food safety catastrophe.
Comprehensive sanitation scheduling includes complete instructions for implementing every aspect of your sanitation program. This includes a list of tasks and how often they need to be performed. The schedule will also outline personnel requirements and whether individual tasks are assigned to in-house staff or to outside contractors. Information on required training, sanitation supplies, and equipment also need to be included. The Master Sanitation Schedule should also include the means for plant managers to follow up and confirm that tasks were performed correctly and on time.
Modern food plant hygiene requires more than the occasional training of plant personnel or having a plant sanitation procedures manual in some back office. FSS Food Sanitation will produce an effective Master Sanitation Schedule for your plant from start to finish. Your plant sanitation protocol will include scheduled tasks, employee training, self-audit or inspection, and corrective actions. We provide a wide range of sanitation chemicals and equipment; our experienced staff will recommend products that maximize your plan's effectiveness.
