Guide to Lighting Best Practice for the Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 8
Publish Date: 13 June 2017
BRCGS Standards requires companies to ensure that there is adequate lighting throughout their sites so that staff are able to perform correct operations of processes as well as monitor quality and product defects.
Certificated sites must assess where light bulbs and strip lights pose a risk (e.g. where they are in close proximity to production, storage areas or staff facilities) as these will need to be protected against breakage. Consideration must be given to all types of lighting in order to minimise the likelihood of breakage and the spread of glass or brittle plastic.
