As a result, the company follows requirements set out in the FSANZ (Food Standards Australia New Zealand Act 1991).
The Pest controller will identify hazards. The Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) outlines the food manufacturing standards. The food business holds responsibility for regularly reviewing and monitoring the program. A qualified food and safety inspector is responsible for the audits. The relationship between the food business and pest exterminator is crucial, as both members need to work in harmony. Pest Assured always requests information to the food business on identifying any chemical risks.
Commercial food clients are responsible for inducting all contractors on safety. The Pest manager and client both have a duty to follow all OH&S standards. Pest Assured insures all their staff is hygienic and clean in all operations. The exterminator must not be at work when sick, carrying diseases or suffering from contagious diseases. A number of rules are enforced resulting in a reduced risk of contamination.

Designing a pest program with Pest Assured
Designing a pest program is based upon the results required by the client. Pest Assured will emphasise this upon the first inspection of the premises. The program will be very direct rather than responsive. Service intervals will vary and be influenced by site conditions, season of year, location and environment. The initial site inspection is very important as this is when everything is sighted and documented. The inspection will report on details of activity and further possible pest evidence. Areas in which Pest Assured inspect include; process areas, storage areas, roof voids, subfloor voids, service rooms, administration rooms, building exteriors and fence lines.
Furthermore the exterminator from Pest Assured will be responsible for the program, communication with client and reporting on works carried out. Scope of works shall include; pests covered, frequency of service, areas, methods of treatment, pest monitoring plan, and schedule of conditions.
Reports will include (varying on sites)
- Clients name
- Site address
- Technician/Exterminators name
- Pest activity
- Chemicals used, active constituents and batch numbers
- Site map
- Any other regulations required by client or Pest manager.
Inspections and continual monitoring are very important in successful treatment of large-scale commercial sites. As a result Pest Assured will monitor data from sticky glue boards, insect droppings, bait consumption and photos we take at the site. Consequently these examining techniques are vital in the long-term control of pests. The use of bait, inspections, glue traps, feedback, stored items are all equally important. Therefore if the exterminator is only carrying out one part of his duty then the pest program will not succeed. Pest Assured always use leading technology to create reporting on site with which we will provide to the client.
