Improved DineSafe website launched PDF Print E-mail

Clarington diners looking for a place to grab a meal have a new tool in their arsenal.

The Durham Region Health Department has launched the final phase of the DineSafe Durham food safety inspection disclosure program, with the implementation of the improved DineSafe Durham website. This new resource is designed to provide greater access to information about Health Department food inspection results online.

Following a pilot period which began last August, the new website provides more timely and up-to-date inspection results of Durham Region food establishments from March 2, 2009 and includes information on all current inspections. The new website can be found at www.durham.ca.

“Through the pilot of this website, we received input from the community and owner/operators of food premises that has resulted in several improvements to this resource,” explained Ken Gorman, Director, Environmental Health with the Health Department. “Inspection information on the website will be updated on a daily basis and results will be as close to real time as possible. Information available will likely be as current as two working days.”

The DineSafe Durham program was first introduced in March 2009 and includes on-site posting of green, yellow or red summary inspection signs at the entrances of area food establishments. The expanded website represents the final phase of this program.
