Health Hazards


As required by the Health Protection and Promotion Act, the public health unit strives to prevent and reduce adverse health outcomes resulting from exposure to health hazards. Examples of health hazards include exposure to biological, physical and chemical agents, natural or man made, in homes, public places and the work place.

All public inquiries or complaints are reviewed to determine their public health significance. If there is a potential public health concern, the complaint will be investigated. Appropriate action is taken in order to alleviate any potentially identified health hazards. If the public health unit is not the regulatory agency for the concern, referral will be made to the appropriate government ministry or authority.

If you have any questions or require information related to any potential health hazard please contact a Public Health Inspector by phoning your local Grey Bruce Health Unit office.
