GlassGuard® points food manufacturers to lighting best practice - 12th August 2015

Food safety lighting experts GlassGuard® have reinforced their support of the BRC’s Guide to Lighting Best Practice following the recent introduction of Issue 7 of the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety.

Chris Payne of GlassGuard® says: “Certification against Issue 7 of the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety became effective on the 1 July 2015 and as food manufacturers turn their attention to meeting new requirements, it’s important that vital elements such as lighting within the Building Fabric section of the Standard are not overlooked. We therefore welcome the supporting Guide to Lighting Best Practice from the BRC as it recognises the importance of lighting to food safety in a food production environment.”

The Guide to Lighting Best Practice for the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety is published by BRC Global Standards in partnership with the Society of Light and Lighting. It aims to provide advice to food manufacturing and packaging sites to develop robust systems and procedures which adequately meet the lighting requirements of the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety.

Mark Proctor, CEO of BRC Global Standards said: “With today’s ever changing lighting technology, it’s imperative that manufacturing sites ensure there is adequate lighting throughout their sites so that staff are able to perform correct operational processes as well as monitor quality and product defects.”
