According to reports, an independent MP is asking for sterner measures for restaurants, so as to perk up health standards throughout South Australia. However, restaurants feel that it would not be a good idea.
Bob Such carried out a research, which revealed that in the current year, 712 eateries had been issued a warning or penalized for violating the health standards.
Dr. Such says that the system should be made translucent and one that can be applied perfectly overseas.
He said, "For example in the United Kingdom they have a system called 'scores on the doors' where the inspection of eateries is placed not only on the restaurant door but it's on the internet and other sources".
As per the present SA guidelines, felonious restaurants are not to be exposed by the councils, unless they have been punished.
Meanwhile, the CEO of Restaurant and Catering SA, Sally Neville, says that Dr. Such's suggested system can have a harmful impact on the businesses that have committed small breaches.
She said that the idea is crazy and she would share her viewpoint in a letter to Health Minister, John Hill. She deems that the execution of his idea is not in the welfare of the masses.
