The safety, quality and nutritional value of the food we eat is of fundamental importance to our health and wellbeing. Food safety and nutrition are therefore key concerns for the council.
The Food and Occupational Safety team ensures the provision of clean, safe food and water, safe places of work and an environment free from statutory nuisances. This it achieves by inspection, food safety and health and safety enforcement at commercial premises within the Borough.
In addition they provide advice and education on food safety, health and safety and infectious disease matters, investigate noise pollution from commercial premises, and investigate infectious disease cases.
