Control/Investigation of Outbreaks & Food Related Disease Food Law Enforcement Protocols (Scotland) Mobile App
The Control and Investigation of Outbreaks and Food Related Disease Food Law Enforcement Protocols (Scotland) is an app that is used to ensure that a local authority charged with food hygiene and food safety enforcement has a documented procedure in place to handle outbreaks of food poisoning.
How does it work?
This audit checks for the existence of the procedure, the involvement of the local authority in putting together said procedure, whether or not the procedure covers outbreak declarations, roles and extents of organizations during an outbreak, alerts and informing CDSC, HPS, and other health authorities or departments, arrangements for working with neighboring local authorities, assembling an outbreak control team, and more. Outbreaks can be deadly and dangerous so having a proper process for managing/controlling outbreaks is very important to promote food safety as well as public health.
