Sanitarians investigate health and safety within an environment. They are public health specialists who identify risks and enforce environmental regulations, health, and safety.

Where can a sanitarian work?

Sanitarians commonly work in public health divisions of states, counties, cities, and towns. They conduct inspections for settings such as food service establishments, health care facilities, swimming pools, and water treatment facilities.
