State award for environmental health programs

The City of Canterbury Bankstown has been recognised at the NSW Environmental Health Excellence Awards, for two projects which are a state-first and have had a direct impact on the health and wellbeing of thousands of local residents and visitors.

Council was named Environmental Health Team of the Year for the implementation of the Scores on Schools and Hygiene and Infection Control programs, as well as its ongoing support of local work experience and TAFE students.

Scores on Schools, based on the Scores on Doors (food shop) program, is aimed at safe food handling and allergen management in schools and child care centres.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the program is ongoing and involves routine food inspections, carried out by Council’s Environmental Health Officers.

“Since it was launched last year, more than 50 schools and child care centres have participated in the program,” Mayor Asfour said.

"In addition to Scores on Schools, the team has further demonstrated its outstanding service to food surveillance by providing food safety workshops for TAFE NSW hospitality students; facilitating monthly food safety training for food handlers in a number of languages; and developing food safety educational material, such as fact sheets, stickers and guidelines.

“We are also the first council in NSW to develop an ongoing Hygiene and Infection Control Program, which we launched last year.

"All skin penetration businesses, that have participated in the program, have been awarded a Certificate of Compliance after follow-up inspections.

“The program rewards businesses which consistently demonstrate an extensive understanding in hygiene and infection control procedures.

“Winning this state award for these programs recognises Council’s ongoing practises when it comes to the health and wellbeing of our residents and visitors.”

The City of Canterbury Bankstown also won the NSW Food Authority’s Food Surveillance Champion Award in 2013, for its free safe food handling workshops for local businesses. These are held in multiple languages and have involved 450 businesses to date.
