6. The risk assessment team will conduct an inspection of the department/area being assessed for risk or observe the process being assessed for risk in action. The members of the risk assessment team will individually document their findings on the “ABC Proactive Risk Assessment Worksheet” (Attachment A).

Pitman Hall is Ryerson’s largest residence located on 160 Mutual St. which is home to nearly 1000 students. The inspection was completed at the residence’s cafeteria where meals were served three times a day on a daily basis. According to DineSafe, this establishment was inspected twice by the Toronto Public Health, where the inspectors evaluate based on the Ontario Food Premises Regulation. The inspection results shows the establishment passed, meaning no infractions were found while inspecting. During inspection, its important food inspectors follow the site-specific risk categorization process to determine the risk levels of the food premises. Risk categorization management (RCM) is a tool that will permit the board of health to deliver a reliable approach to inspection developing and resource distribution, while enhancing public health protection towards food safety. (By notifying the food establishment owner knows
