It is clothing developed specifically for the food industry. HACCP-approved clothing must be used to keep consumers protected and maintain a number of food safety requirements and standards.
The workwear is used by production workers who handle food. The clothing has a decisive influence on whether the production environment is clean and safe. It must meet the consumers' demands for function and comfort and the requirement for certification for industrial washing.
HACCP-approved clothing meets the requirements of the DIN 10524 standard, which minimizes the risk of loss of loose articles and ensures that the clothes can be washed at high temperatures.
There are different products available in this category, such as caps, smocks, jackets, trousers, overalls, and hats.
HACCP is usually divided into three levels depending on the type of food product being worked with. You must follow the instructions from the given workplace.
Low hygiene risk (risk class 1):
High hygiene risk (risk class 2):
Highest hygiene risk (risk class 3):
It is recommended that the clothing be white or light in colour so it is easier to see if it is clean or has been spilled on.
Exterior pockets should be avoided if you are at the high or highest hygiene risk level .
For all three hygiene risk levels, it is recommended that the garments have long sleeves with the possibility of adjusting the width.
When using smocks and jackets, they must always be worn closed and long enough to cover any pockets in the trousers.
Hooks and pushbuttons must be made of metal so that they can be detected.
If there is a need for a logo on the clothing, it is a requirement that it is embroidered and has the same lifespan as the clothing.
