Learning from Local Public Health – A Sharing Session Series in Retail Food Safety

Part 1: Breaking the Barriers to Implementing Risk-Based Inspections in Retail Food Safety
Thursday, May 26 from 2 PM – 3 PM ET

This session will highlight five strategies to overcome barriers to implementing risk-based inspections.

Part 2: A Retrospective Look at How Local Retail Food Regulatory Programs Used Risk Factor Intervention Strategies
Thursday, June 2 from 2 PM – 3 PM ET

This webinar will focus on the use of risk factor intervention strategies within local retail food regulatory programs. Presenters will discuss the findings of the 2021 study which assessed jurisdictions’ use of risk factor interventions, including how they were created, implemented, and evaluated for effectiveness.

The 2021 study conducted by NACCHO and CFP aimed to identify, better understand, and assess the application of risk-based inspection methods currently employed by local retail food regulatory programs. It also sought to identify the overarching barriers preventing the application of risk-based inspection methods. Nine jurisdictions were interviewed, and the participants identified 15 barriers to the implementation of risk-based inspection methods.
