Environmental Health

Orkney Islands Council's Environmental Health team has the task of identifying and controlling anything in our environment that poses a risk to the health and well being of people living in our community.

Their remit includes the places we live in, the food and water we eat and drink, the air we breathe, and the places where we work or enjoy leisure time. The Council’s Environmental Health officers provide advice and information on all of these issues and have extensive powers to ensure health is protected, maintained and improved.
