E.coli council 'progress' on measures.
In January, acting chief medical officer for Wales, Dr David Salter, told local authorities they should try harder to avoid future cases.
More than 150 people were affected by the bug that claimed the life of Mason Jones, five.
Police have launched an investigation into his death, which will be followed by a public inquiry.
Among the recommendations Dr Salter made to councils was a call to improve the cleaning of schools and to ensure children have soap and hot water to wash their hands after using the toilet.
Bridgend meat supplier John Tudor and Son was linked to last year's epidemic, which struck down children in schools across Bridgend county, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Caerphilly and Merthyr Tydfil.
Bridgend council's cabinet heard this week all schools under its control have been told to review their cleaning regimes.
Environment director Rhodri Gwynn-Jones said a close working relationship forged with the Food Standards Agency during the outbreak is also being built upon.
He added managers were also looking into whether the public protection department could provide a round-the-clock service.
Council leader Cheryl Green said: 'Hopefully, we will eradicate future outbreaks of this kind.'
