Environmental health placements

Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) work to ensure that the food we eat is safe and of good quality, to improve housing conditions, to safeguard standards of workplace health and safety and to create a better environment, for example by tackling air pollution problems.

EHOs are highly qualified professionals whose work, as well as being varied and challenging, makes a real difference to people's health and well-being.

To develop a career in environmental health you need to undertake an accredited course that is recognised by the Environmental Health Officers Registration Board. Training includes a work experience placement with a local authority.

The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH ) is an independent professional body and registered charity representing those who work in environmental health and related disciplines. They offer a range of accredited training and professional development courses.

Please visit cieh-coursefinder for full information on all the courses on offer.
