Governor recognizes Environmental Health pros
Gov. Matt Bevin on Friday recognized March 14-18 as Environmental Health Professionals Week in honor of the numerous registered sanitarians working across the state to ensure the health, safety and welfare of their fellow Kentuckians.
Environmental health professionals help ensure the safety of restaurants, grocery stores, supermarkets, food production facilities, schools, hotels, motels, mobile home parks, public swimming pools and tattoo businesses through routine health inspections. They also provide support for other health programs that target issues such as lead-based paint, septic systems, radon, milk, water, quality assurance, animal rabies and many more.
