Inspections

Regular routine inspections of Food Premises, Lodging Houses, Public Buildings and Offensive Trades are undertaken to ensure compliance with legislative requirements. New premises are required to be designed and constructed to comply with the Health Act, Food Act, Food Hygiene Regulations and Council's Local Law Relating to Health. Food premises must now be registered.

Advice and training can be given to food handlers on how to avoid potential hazards. Continual surveillance is kept on transportation, delivery and storage of foods, especially with regard to perishable food items.

Hairdressing and Skin Penetration premises are also inspected for compliance with the Hairdressing and Skin Penetration Code of Practice.

For further details regarding food inspections please contact Tim Brokenshire, Manager Environmental Health and Ranger Services, on 9188 4411 or email soa@ashburton.wa.gov.au
