Public Health

Public health is about the wellbeing of the community. It is about protecting and improving health through education, promotion and monitoring of hazards.

Our public health programs include immunisation programs, food safety, ongoing water monitoring (recreational waterways/public pools/spas), tobacco control, public health risk activities, safety of public buildings and the regulatory management of these issues.

Council’s Environmental Health Officers also manage the registration of businesses engaging in skin piercing activities such as tattooing, piercing and acupuncture. For more information and advice, please contact our Officers on (03) 6211 8200.
