Environmental Health

Environmental Health have overall responsibility to ensure food hygiene and to police areas relating to disability rights and will often make unannounced visits.  AAL has represented dealerships, who have crossed swords with over officious Environmental Health officers.

Like Trading Standards, Environmental Health officials have limited statutory powers of entry but usually rely on goodwill and applied advice.  They will not prosecute unless they have evidence of serious breaches but nevertheless are sometimes over pedantic

In recent years AAL has represented dealerships, when it was alleged entry was refused for a routine food standards inspection and on another occasion, when a safety barrier on a disabled toilet broke, causing injury and distress.

If you encounter problems with Environmental Health officers it would prove a propitious exercise to contact AAL and seek advice.
