Check Safety First to tackle food poisoning outbreaks in Tunisia

Health and safety specialist Check Safety First has teamed up with the British Embassy in Tunisia to help hotels and tour operators avoid the risk of food poisoning outbreaks in the country.

Food poisoning, in particular salmonella, is a huge issue for hotels operating in Tunisia.

As part of the partnership the British Embassy will notify Check Safety First of any salmonella outbreaks in Tunisia so it can investigate and solve the problem.

Check Safety First will also advise English tour operators in the country’s most popular resorts on health and safety best practice and help them protect their guests.

HM Consul for the British Embassy in Tunisia Julia Smyth said: “Tourism from the UK provides a large income to the Tunisian economy, and it is our job to protect British citizens as much as we can. By working with Check Safety First, we are able to help hotels and operators working within the region with a solution for any potential health and safety issues, enabling them to achieve a stamp of approval from the experts.”

Check Safety First chief executive Mark Harrington added: “Tunisia receives 40,000 British tourists annually, and it is essential that the hotels can demonstrate their commitment to protecting these guests. By working with the Embassy, we hope to push health and safety up the agenda of the hotel chains and tour operators, making it an integral part of day-to-day activities.”

Tunisian hotels that are successful in demonstrating and maintaining a high standard of health and safety will be highlighted on checksafetyfirst.com.
