What is Environmental Health?

There is a very close relationship between people and their environment. What happens in the environment can have an adverse effect on our health.  Council Environmental Health Officers actively identify the issues and assess the health risks involved with food premises, hairdressers, funeral directors, camp grounds, offensive trades and many issues relating to the management of private properties and other businesses to protect public health of the surrounding community.
