INSPECTIONS: WHAT EHOs LOOK FOR
Here’s a summarised list of what EHOs look for during food hygiene inspections:
handling of food
how food is stored
how food is prepared
cleanliness of facilities
how food safety is managed
One of the key things environmental health officers look at during inspections is how you’re managing food safety. This comprises an assessment of your processes, records, training and systems to ensure that you’re upholding good food hygiene standards.
Many businesses still rely on pen and paper for their food hygiene records, which can be time consuming and labour intensive, and ultimately result in inefficiencies.
In fact, many restaurant managers, owners or chefs find themselves panically shifting through huge amounts of paper to monitor what’s happening, which may seem unorganised to EHOs. There’s an easy way to change this though.
DIGITAL RECORD KEEPING GETS YOU CLOSER TO A 5-STAR RATING
Take control of food safety management by making the switch from paper-based records to an electronic solution - like the Hubl app.
While paperwork makes it difficult to stay on top of things, digital options simplify your due diligence tasks, providing the right checks and information at the right time.
Digital record keeping ensures greater visibility of issues and priorities, which translates into more knowledgeable management and decision-making.
With Hubl, nothing will get missed. When checks are overdue, the app prompts staff to complete them on its intuitive, colour-coded dashboard.
Switching to digital guarantees better visibility, speed and functionality. It also lets you make changes at the tap of a few buttons.
IMPROVE YOUR FOOD HYGIENE RATING - EFFORTLESSLY
When it comes to improving your food hygiene rating, it’s important to never neglect how hygienically the food is handled and the physical conditions of the business.
This means you should be following the correct cooking, reheating and storage procedures, ensuring the premises are clean and have good ventilation, among other things.
As such, you should always ensure that:
Food is properly and safely prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored
Your business premises should be clean and have adequate ventilation, layout, lighting, pest control and other facilities
If you’re unsure how to maintain high standards of food hygiene in your restaurant, hotel or coffee shop, you may want to consider enlisting the help of experienced consultants. They can audit your premises and ensure they’re in the best shape possible, so you’re always prepared for an EHO inspection.
As per the Food Standards Agency guidance, the other key element that makes up your score is all about the ways your business manages food safety, assessing your level of confidence in maintaining standards in the future.
Having a strong food safety management system and effective record keeping helps build a positive food safety culture and creates a foundation for achieving a 5-star food hygiene rating. Hubl can help you with both of these elements (and more).
Designed by food safety experts, Hubl is a hospitality due diligence app that gives you one less thing to worry about when it comes to running a successful business.
Hubl takes the guesswork out of food safety management, getting you one step closer to improving your rating and attaining a 5* score on the door.
A food business that uses Hubl no longer needs to print and file food safety checks. It’s all done within the app. This saves you both time and money. It also makes it much easier to keep track of everything and monitor what’s happening.

FOOD SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The Hubl app can securely store interactive Food Safety and Health & Safety Management Systems.
Accessible at all times, these digital documents make it easier to find information when you need exactly when you need it.
According to the Food Standards Agency, you must have food safety management systems in place that are based on the principles of HACCP - Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point.
Hubl’s FSMS is based on these principles and is individually customised to the needs of each business, providing a comprehensive, tailored solution for the management of food safety.
With Hubl, you can also get your documents updated quickly. Simply contact our team and we’ll get it sorted for you. This is important as your FSMS should be regularly reviewed and updated to accurately reflect your business’ activities.
