Why is this important?
Health inspections are based on three different levels of point scoring, depending upon the type of facility. A food establishment fails their inspection when the score is 30 points or greater. The city’s goal is to have 95 percent of all food establishments pass each routine health inspection provided to them. Food establishments that have a failing inspection score pose a public health risk. Determining which establishments are underperforming also allows Consumer Health to allocate necessary resources for compliance.
A focus on education, training and quality relationships with restaurant owners has enabled Consumer Health to consistently meet its goals. During the internal quality assurance review process, Consumer Health may increase the frequency of inspections to address the needs of each business on a personal level.
