The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is proposing to amend the meat, poultry products, and egg products regulations to redefine the 8-hour work day to include time that inspection program personnel need to spend at the workplace donning and doffing required gear and time spent walking to and from their workstations after donning required gear.
