A Critical Public Health Initiative

Health Departments are under increasing pressures. The community wants more unbiased, objective food safety information. Public Health Boards are pushing for more transparency. Budget cuts threaten staffing. Leadership struggles with disparate inspection styles. There are few benchmarks to know what or how to improve services.

Together we can help health departments improve!

The primary goal of this research and analysis is to provide health departments with anonymous benchmarks for continuous process improvement.

Currently food code standards, benchmarking, and health departmentPublic Health Initiative inspection processes vary dramatically between states and municipalities.  The consistency and frequency of inspections varies widely. All this disparity prevents comparisons between jurisdictions. Lack of comparison hinders efforts in collective process improvement.

I was invited to present a topic at the 2018 NEHA Anaheim meeting entitled “Proposed Standardized Restaurant Grading System Provides Sector Region & Health Department Comparison” . The response from health departments and industry was heart warming.

NEHA DSA public health initiative The DiningSafetyAlliance.org and the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) collaboration will develop a tool that can be used by health departments to anonymously compare themselves against similar regional or state jurisdictions.
