About inspection reports

How inspectors determine report scores:

  • A health inspection report begins with a score of 100.
  • The inspector subtracts violation points from 100 to determine the final score for a business.
  • Violations receive either two or four points each. Some violations are not included in the score because they receive zero points. 

Violation types:

  1. Priority 1 violations receive four points each. They are the most serious violations. They can cause food to be unsafe or can cause an injury. An example is not cooking or cooling food to the correct temperature or employees who do not wash their hands correctly. 
  2. Priority 2 violations receive two points each. Priority 2 violations are things that are done to control food safety risk factors. Examples are a business without a thermometer or a handsink without soap.
  3. Priority 3 violations receive zero points. Priority 3 items relate to general cleanliness and maintenance. Examples are broken equipment or dirty floors.

Inspection types:

  • Routine inspection: Businesses have a routine inspection every 12, 18 or 24 months, depending on their food preparation methods.
  • Follow-up inspection: An inspector does a follow-up inspection if a business scored 91 points or lower on their most recent inspection. As of January, 2020, we do follow-up inspections within approximately 14 days. During follow-up inspections, health inspectors check to see whether a business corrected violations.
