The main objective of this session is to review what to expect from a food service inspection of your establishment. By the time the session is over, you should be able to understand the purpose of food service inspections, identify different types of inspections, know what inspectors look for, prepare effectively for food service inspections, act appropriately during an inspection, and help ensure a successful outcome without violations.
Why “Food Service Inspections” Matters:
- Failure to maintain your establishment in compliance with state and local food service regulations could lead to an inspector citing your establishment for violations of the regulations.
- Violations could result in fines or even temporary closure of your establishment.
- A follow-up inspection will be scheduled to make sure you correct any problems the inspector uncovered.
- Your customers might hear about an unfavorable health inspection and be reluctant to eat and drink at your establishment for fear of getting food poisoning.
- The better prepared you are for a food service inspection, the better the result is likely to be.
- Make sure you understand compliance requirements of state and local food service regulations.
- Inspections are an opportunity to maintain high food safety standards and ensure customers safe food served in a clean, sanitary, and pleasant environment.
