The Environmental Office (Miljökontoret) regularly inspects restaurants and school kitchens without giving them any warning. Our school kitchen is no exception and so far we have passed every single surprise inspection that we have had.
Recently the Environmental Office has been working on a national project to check the standards of cleaning, ventilation and maintenance at schools throughout Sweden. This is an excellent initiative as schools are actually Sweden's biggest 'workplace' and our students' work environment is very important for their studying and overall well-bring.
We were very happy to receive our feedback after the recent inspection - no points of major criticism, some smaller issues to take care of and overall "one of the best schools we have seen so far - you have come a long way in your work!".
