Environmental Health Division

The Environmental Health Division promotes Public Health by addressing the environmental factors that can adversely affect human health.  The primary role of the environmental staff is to prevent human illness or injury through public education, regulation and advocacy. While responding to public health concerns is a function of the environmental division, the majority of our effort is directed towards education, and disease and accident prevention.

Environmental Health inspections and investigations are conducted by Registered Sanitarians, as required by Ohio Revised Code Chapter 4736. A sanitarian is a professional who performs educational, investigational, technical, or administrative duties requiring specialized knowledge and skills in the field of environmental health science. In order to achieve Registered Sanitarian status, one must first complete a four-year college degree with emphasis in science. All Registered Sanitarians and Sanitarians-In-Training must complete a minimum of 18 hours of continuing education annually in order to keep their registration current.
