Percent of permitted restaurants with a passing health inspection score
Safety | Desired Measure Result: Above Target
Code Compliance issues health permits to all businesses that offer food to the public and meet minimum safety standards. Health inspectors regularly conduct unannounced inspections of these businesses. Food safety violations are assigned points, 1, 2, or 3 points, based on the risk of causing food borne illness. A food establishment fails their inspection when the cumulative score is 30 points or greater. The city’s goal is to have 95 percent of all food establishments pass each inspection. Food establishments that have a failing score pose a public health risk. Determining which establishments are underperforming allows Consumer Health to allocate necessary resources to these businesses and ensure immediate corrections are made for improved safety moving forward.
