Why your Environmental Health Officer wants you to go digital
By Food Safe System
As a good business, under European legislation, you are legally required to have in place a documented food safety, or HACCP policy.
While the vast majority of establishments just print off and use the standard pages from the Food Standards Agency website, it is entirely up to the business itself as to what method they use as long as they can show a completed and reliable record of food safety checks when asked, usually during their regular EHO Inspection.
A distinct advantage digital records have over paper based records is that each entry is time stamped and assigned to whomever inputted the data, minimising the possibility of false or doctored records, increasing inspector, and customer confidence in your business.
In 2018 the Food Standards Agency announced a strategy to make Food Safety Digital, the eventual aim of which is to have all food establishments utilise digital records, thereby increasing government and consumer confidence in the industry while cutting down on inspections and disruption, especially for the top performing businesses.
So now is the best time to go digital,
