Sources of contamination from containers

When bags or boxes are opened and emptied there is a great potential for contamination. Pieces of string or paper removed in the opening process must be placed in rubbish bins and not on the floor. Before inverting a bag, box or other type of container, ensure that it has not collected floor or surface dirt that could fall into an unwanted place.

Dispose of the empty container in a responsible way so that spillage or dust is avoided as much as possible and it is not a danger to other workers.

No glass containers must be brought into the production area. Glass containers must never be taken into production areas. Where ingredients are delivered in glass containers they should be dispensed into non breakable containers in specially designated rooms away from the production areas.
