Protecting Your Plant

Ecolab offers the following advice on plant protection to dairy processing plants. You may well find them adaptable to your operation.

  • Reduce the number of entrances and exits to the plant property.
  • Spray the wheels and undercarriage of all vehicles entering or leaving the premises with an EPA-registered disinfectant or sanitizer. (Foaming is preferred.)
  • Stop non-essential vehicles and visitors from entering the plant.
  • All personnel entering and leaving should have footwear, clothing and hands cleaned to remove organic material, then sprayed or foamed with an EPA-registered disinfectant or sanitizer.
  • Each doorway entrance to the plant should be protected by a sanitizing system. Doorway spray/foam systems are recommended.
  • Ensure all surfaces are completely and properly treated during the cleaning and disinfecting or sanitizing procedure.
  • Pay close attention to personal hygiene (hand cleaning and disinfecting, boots, protective clothing, etc.) and make sure visitors do the same.
  • Provide your own protective clothing to all visitors. Used laundry should be stored in an appropriate laundry bag.
  • Read material compatibility notes prior to using any cleaner, disinfectant or sanitizer.
  • Wear protective clothing and safety clothing during the cleaning, disinfecting or sanitizing actions.
