We are here to serve your Environmental Health needs

Program Focus

The Detroit Health Department Environmental Health Division licenses and inspects a wide range of businesses and establishments under state laws and local ordinances. The goal of these inspections is to reduce the risk of illness associated with these facilities.

PLEASE NOTE: Per Detroit Health Department policy, Food Safety and Environmental Health inspectors should not be offered, nor should they request any form of goods (including water, food, money, etc.) or services in the course of performing their inspection duties at your establishment. It is illegal to offer an inspector any item of value in exchange for favorable inspection report/outcome, and any offer of goods or services will be reported to senior department leadership.
