Environmental Health

The Environmental Health Team within the Council can provide advice to help you plan, establish and develop your business in a safe and protective manner. 

  • Food Businesses

    Environmental Health Officers ensure food premises comply with food safety legislation and they provide advice and information to those involved in the preparation, production and sale of food.

  • Product Safety

    Product Safety involves ensuring all goods on sale to the public are safe for their intended use. The responsibility to supply safe consumer goods applies all the way down from the manufacturer to the retailer. 

  • Introduction to Health and Safety

    Employers must ensure so far as is reasonably practicable the health, safety and welfare of their employees.

  • Health and Safety at Work

    Health and Safety at Work is primarily concerned with the prevention of injury and disease to people at work and those who visit the workplace.

  • Mind Body Business

    Mind Body Business is a joint initiative by the Public Health Agency and Ards and North Down Borough Council that aims to benefit you, your business and your employees, by providing a series of initiatives that encourages employers to put “health” at the centre of their business agenda.
