Environmental Health Officer (EHO)
Trained and certified professionals who evaluate and monitor health and safety hazards in the territory. They are designated as Health Officers and are named in the Public Health and Safety Act (RSY 2002, c.176) to enforce government regulations relating to food safety, sanitation, safe water and other environmental health issues.
Follow-up inspection
A follow-up inspection occurs when infractions are observed during a routine inspection. The Environmental Health Officer determines if and when a follow-up inspection is required based on the severity of the infraction.
Food establishment
Also known as an “eating or drinking place,” a food establishment is defined under the Regulation (OIC 1961/001) as any place, except a private dwelling, where food or drink is located and intended to be used for purposes of sale or other disposal to members of the public.
Health Hazard
A condition of a premises; a substance, thing, plant or animal other than a person; or a solid, liquid, gas or combination of any of them, that has or that is likely to have an adverse effect on the health of any person.
In compliance (Yes)
The stated requirement was met at the time of the inspection.
The failure to meet legislative requirements. The term is often used interchangeably with “violation,” “contravention,” “non-compliance,” or “offence.”
Not applicable (N/Ap)
The stated requirement does not apply to this establishment. One inspection model is used for many different establishments and not all requirements apply to all establishments.
Not in compliance (No)
The stated requirement was not met at the time of the inspection. An infraction was noted and follow-up efforts were planned depending on the severity of the infraction.
Not observed (N/Ob)
The stated requirement applies to the establishment but compliance was not assessed at the time of inspection.
Orders are issued under the Public Health and Safety Act (RSY 2002, c.176) when there are reasonable and probable grounds that a health hazard exists or in cases of recurring non-compliance. The order will refer to requirements that need to be met before the order can be rescinded and/or the premises can re-open.
Routine Inspection
A routine inspection is performed to meet program requirements for the minimum inspection frequency of an establishment. Environmental Health Officers visit establishments on a routine basis to inspect the physical environment and equipment and observe the practices of service providers to ensure the establishments are following applicable health requirements.
