What are the consequences of pest infestation for pharmaceutical businesses?
It is paramount to prevent any pest infestations occurring in any pharmaceutical business. Your business may be affected by a host of different pests depending on the product type and the stock of raw materials (foodstuff, chemical products, etc.). Product pests, such as moths or beetles may contaminate raw materials with their eggs or excrement, while insects like ants or flies can contaminate the production process as they're attracted to any materials containing sugar.
According to the Australian Department of Health, section 1 of the code of good wholesaling practice for medicines states that strict and effective measures should be taken to prevent rodents, vermin, birds, pets and pests from entering the pharmaceutical building. Failure to do so compromises the medicine/therapeutic goods being produced, thus the safe securing of medicines on the premises are of the utmost importance.
What are areas within a pharmaceutical business most at risk?
- Shared staff facilities (restaurants, lavatories, changing rooms, etc.)
- Production areas (using pallets, packaging material)
- Storage facilities (foodstuff, raw materials)
- Goods receiving and shipping departments
- Parking facilities
- Waste collection areas
