Employees are a key element in complying with strict food defense regulations. The average production site is full of critical areas. To ensure its hygiene as well as its safety, a strict access policy is required, with employees only allowed in areas necessary for the performance of their duties.
Time registration also plays an important role. Regulations require careful control of who is on the production line and when. During the shift, an employee has access to certain areas, but as soon as the shift is over, access can be automatically withdrawn.
It is also important to properly inform employees about the implications of the regulations and to involve them in complying with them. Make sure that the receptionist, security guards, drivers and any other employees are aware of their crucial role in the process. This can be done, for example, through a company film or internal training.
