• It is the responsibility of each sanitation member to communicate with other members of the team as well as leads, supervisors, and other departments in the facility.
• Any maintenance issues, injuries, and potential food safety or employee safety concerns need to be reported to a lead or supervisor.

• Tasks change daily to fulfill the sanitation master frequency schedule.
• The sanitation members will work as a team to complete all assigned daily tasks.
• When working on the wet side, Sanitation members are often required to wear extra Personnel Protective Equipment (PPE) including a rain suit, face shield, and chemical resistant boots. This PPE suit is not breathable and gets hot quickly when working in the pasteurizer and during the summer months. This extra PPE is only worn by wet side sanitation members to protect themselves from the higher concentration of chemical being used when performing an allergen clean. An allergen clean is when the sanitation team cleans one type of tree nut so production can run a different type of tree nut the next day (i.e. cleaning walnuts so production can run almonds).
• Wet Side sanitation members are responsible for assembling and disassembling pieces in both the retail and pasteurizer departments and transporting those pieces to the outside wash down area.
• In the wash down area, members use foamers with 9% chemical and pressure washers to allergen clean the pieces, tools, buckets, and brooms.
• After the pieces are assembled and an inspection has been done by all sanitation employees and leads, an allergen test is performed to document a successful allergen clean.
• Staff must fill out a pre-operations check list prior to shift. They also must keep detailed logs of sanitation tasks daily and stay on schedule with tasks to be done daily, weekly, monthly and annually.
