West Suffolk Council Food Safety and Health and Safety Service Plans 2023 to 2024

The Cabinet will be asked to consider and approve West Suffolk Council Food Safety and Health and Safety Service Plans 2023 to 2024.


Food Safety

This plan covers all areas of food law that West Suffolk Council has a duty to enforce and sets out how West Suffolk Council intends to deliver official controls within its area.


The Food Law Code of Practice states that each competent authority must have an up-to-date, documented food service plan which is readily available to food business operators and consumers.


Health and Safety

The Commercial Environmental Health (CEH) team within the Environmental Health service works in partnership with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), other local authorities, private businesses and with other internal services where appropriate to regulate statutory health and safety provisions and to provide enforcement, education, guidance, and emergency intervention to ensure the health and safety of employees and other persons. This service plan therefore covers the work of the council as a regulator for certain health and safety activities.
