Research in environmental health and food safety control is focused on the control activities of environmental health care and the assessment of their impact. Environmental health and food safety control is a very wide-ranging field that covers all environmental threats to human health. Control research focuses currently on food safety.
The impact of food safety control means the prospects of monitoring activities to prevent and eliminate problems related to food safety. The absence of a comprehensive system for routinely measuring the impact of food safety control makes evaluating its success difficult. Research can help develop more fit-for-purpose control measures and models by evaluating their significance to food safety.
Prior research subjects have included municipal resource allocation in food safety, the implementation of fee-based control in control units, the operations of groups investigating food-poisoning outbreaks, the renewal of licenses for food-production establishments, as well as the views on food safety and its usefulness held in these establishments, the effects of the nationalisation of meat inspection in small-scale slaughterhouses and the impact of control methods.
In the future, maintaining control standards requires an ever-growing role for the appropriate allocation of control resources and the implementation of increasingly efficient control methods.
