Can a restaurant owner higher a consultant (health and safety supervisor) to inspect the restaurant on regular basis?

My question is if a restaurant owner can higher someone’s with a degree in Biomedical Sciences as a health and safety inspector to ensure that workers hygiene, safety and the restaurant condition are good and prepare the restaurant for any health inspection visits.

Note: the person does not have any licensing from the state, so they would be hired as a health and safety supervisor?

Are there any federal regulations prevent creating this job?

    Sure, as long as the consultant has any necessary certifications, licenses and qualifications. State laws vary as to what might be required, but it isn't a "degree in biomedical" anything.

    Note spelling: "hire". "Higher" means "more tall".

    Sure.

    Why not?

    p.s. For today's free English lesson, the proper word is HIRE, not the similarly sounding, improper word HIGHER.

    This would be an asinine thing to do and a complete waste of money. No restaurant would hire someone like this. I'll tell you why.

    Money, for starters.

    Everything a restaurant owner needs to know can be found easily online. We used to use a checklist that we got directly from the health department and we kept up with it. I'll telly you why: it ain't rocket science.

    Third: money.

    Fourth: this is why a restaurant owner would hire a - get this - manager.

    Fifth: money.

    Sixth: the manager would know what to do.

    Seventh: a restaurant hiring someone for this with a biomedical sciences degree would be complete overkill. Complete. It would also be a complete waste of time for the guy/gal with a degree. That degree could be put to use on the government level, perhaps working as a health inspector for the state, or maybe working for OSHA.

    Eighth: a restaurant isn't going to waste money when they're not going to listen to them - trust me on that. Most restaraunts run by the seat of their pants. A health dept guy shows up, dings em for whatever, gives them a week to make corrections, comes back, says ok and the restaurant goes right back to violating health dept standards until they show up again in a few months.

    I think the word you were looking for is "hire" meaning to employ not "higher" which means above. A company can hire anyone as a consultant. There are no federal regulations as to who can be a health and safety supervisor.

    Your restaurant owner won't be able to afford to hire a biomedical engineer. You're looking for a retired consultant

    First, learn how to spell HIRE. Plus 90% of that is just common sense, keeping things clean and not cross contaminating.

    The owner can hire (or retain; that's a better word for a consultant) anyone they want for a pre-inspection that doesn't count, officially.

    "Biomedical Sciences" degree? If that's you, and you're trying to design a business model... I don't think you've got the right qualifications. The right person would have a lot of experience in the local laws and health codes, and restaurant operations. A retired health inspector would be ideal.

    Sorry, if that's not what you want to hear.
