Benefits, challenges, and practicalities of conducting inspection in pairs
Paired inspection was highlighted as an area that might mitigate some of these communication challenges.
Based on the ‘Review on Responsive Approaches to Inspection Processes’, EURCAW-Pigs has produced materials to assist inspectors with the communication part of their role, such as videos to complement inspector training. As part of these activities, we suggested conducting inspection in pairs during training and/or everyday inspection.
In the latest guide, EURCAW-Pigs examined the benefits, challenges, and practicalities of conducting inspection in pairs, with a specific focus on farm inspection. However, many of the benefits, challenges, and practical recommendations are applicable to inspection at slaughter and transport.
