As an Environmental Health Practitioner, you will help protect the health of military and civilian personnel, both on our bases in the UK and on operations and exercises overseas.
In the UK tasks could include; workplace inspections of a broad range of environments from catering facilities to engineering bays to check that personnel are working safely. You may have to monitor the emission levels of hazardous chemicals from a process, measure the lighting or noise levels in a workplace or provide a health brief for personnel before they deploy overseas. In all areas, you will provide specialist advice to minimise health risks.
On operations and exercises, it is the Environmental Health Practitioners responsibility to reduce or prevent non-battle related risks to our personnel. Your tasks could include advising on basic sanitation, pest control or ensuring that supplies of clean drinking water are available. You will also be responsible for monitoring the climatic conditions and other environmental and industrial hazards and help to reduce their impact on health.
