Environmental Health practitioners

Environmental Health Practitioners ensure people have access to clean water, safe food, well managed hazards and healthy places for people to live, work and play. State and local governments work together to ensure high environmental health standards are maintained to prevent disease, illness, injury and premature death arising from environmental exposures and other environmental health impacts.

The following information is targeted at Environmental Health Practitioners working in WA.
