Metal Detectable Plasters
We offer both Sterochef® and Qualicare® branded metal detectable plasters, providing an option to customers of all budgets. Sterochef® plasters feature a stronger plastic dressing, whereas the more affordable Qualicare® plasters offer a lighter, but equally adhesive plastic dressing. Both brands feature an aluminium strip under the wound pad, designed to trigger industrial metal detection systems.
BRC Global Standard Food Safety Issue 7 clause 7.2.3 states: "All cuts and grazes on exposed skin shall be covered by an appropriately coloured plaster that is different from the product colour (preferably blue) and contains a metal detectable strip. These shall be site issued and monitored. Where appropriate, in addition to the plaster, a glove shall be worn."
