Food safety premise inspections

Inspector checking fridge temperature

Environmental Health Officers regularly inspect venues where food is served to ensure compliance with the Food Safety Standards.

This includes public food outlets such as restaurants, cafés and take-away shops, as well as other premises where food is prepared, like child care centres, schools, and aged care facilities.

Environmental Health Officer's also inspect temporary food preparation sites such as stalls at the Royal Showgrounds and other fairs and fêtes across the council area.

All routine food inspections under the Food Act 2001, are charged a statutory fee. Fees are subject to change in line with the Food (fees) Regulations.

EHOs may investigate food handling complaints and instances of food poisoning at food premises. For general advice for food handlers or complaints regarding food handling, please contact the Environmental Health Team on (08) 8372 5111 or
