Citation: At approximately 0900 Dr. and I were performing an unscheduled 06D01 procedure in the loading dock shipping dock area of the plant the following conditions were observed. The shipping door located on the left is off track and off the hinge the track is severely bent and twisted and does not allow for the door to fit properly in the track. This condition causes there to be large opening around this door that leads directly to the outside of the facility. In the small room located to the left of this door used to store pallets and duck wax the following was observed. trash and debris was located throughout this room that included but not limited to ( soda cans paper thrash wood debris used gloves and various other materials) the whole area has an unkempt appearance. In the blast freezer itself on the right side directly under the unit there is a large amount of ice build up and debris that appears to be from broken pallets.
