Food inspection and safe food handling promotion programs are designed to prevent and/or reduce illnesses related to the unsafe handling of food.
We align with the City's Strategic Priorities:
Healthy & Safe Communities
Public Health Inspectors visit locations wherever food is offered for public consumption (food premises), undertake regular inspections of the location and review how food is handled. This helps to reduce food poisoning (food borne illness), ensures risks are mitigated and food handlers are aware of safe food-handling practices and food safety issues.

DATA NOTE: The Citizen Dashboard is in the process of being converted into an Open Data format, linking the Citizen Dashboard with Open Hamilton. During this conversion, the data on the Citizen Dashboard will not be updated quarterly, resulting in some data being out of date. The conversion is underway and is expected to be fully completed by June 2019.
