Independent Biologist Inspections
What is a Field Biologist’s Role?
The Field Biologist role is pivotal in any commercial Integrated Pest Management programme within the food industry. Independent Field Biologist audits ensure a complaint service from the pest control contractor and help assist your contracted Pest Control Provider in carrying out the appropriate quality service. The Field Biologist’s brief is to carry out a technical inspection rather than carry out treatments.
What Does a Biologist’s Audit Achieve?
Our Independent Field Biologist audits provide detailed reports of the pest control programme in place on your premises. It details any evidence of pest activity, trend analysis, and reviews your current pest control service provision. Compliance with requirements is celebrated where possible, and areas of improvement will also be highlighted. It also ensures that essential paperwork systems are current and in place. A maximum score of 500 can be achieved by a pest control provider and from this a percentage score is arrived at.
Through discussion with relevant site managers, a traffic light system can be agreed upon where Red score bracket indicates significant and immediate improvements are required, Amber indicates some minor improvements can be achieved, and the sought after Green confirms that the pest control provider is carrying out all necessary tasks. An overall score rating out of 100 will be given.
Risk assessed and in-depth inspections are a prerequisite of the British Retail Consortium (BRC). They are also required of suppliers to all major food retailers, such as Tesco, M&S, Waitrose, Sainsburys, Asda, Morrisons, Aldi, etc.
