Wonder what it will be like to be an Environmental Public Health Professional?
Environmental Public Health Professionals (also referred to as Public Health Inspectors) inspect various premises such as restaurants, bakeries, daycares, public pools & spas, long-term care facilities, tattoo parlours and hair salons in order to ensure that these premises are in compliance with relevant legislation.
Environmental Public Health Professionals carry out inspections and work with various agencies such as the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and the Ministry of Environment in order to reduce the risk of food and water-borne illness and to ensure effective infection prevention and control practices are being applied. They also work to prevent people from contracting bacterial, viral and parasitic diseases such as food poisoning, rabies and giardiasis. Environmental Public Health Professionals may be called to provide expert testimony in court, and are also involved in issuing tickets and orders in order to enforce compliance with relevant public health legislation.
It’s a career choice that offers challenge, variety, continual growth and the satisfaction of protecting the public.
It’s important for Environmental Public Health Professionals to continue professional development after certification to remain qualified, knowledgeable, competent and ethical practitioners who can properly protect the public.
Canadian Institute of Public Health Inspectors conferences, workshops, newsletters, committees and mail groups ensure that you receive continued professional support, keeping your skills and knowledge current and relevant.
