Environmental health sanitarians and engineers perform a wide variety of environmental public health functions which include inspections at food facilities, water recreation facilities, on-site sewage systems, air pollution control and solid waste facilities. The end goal of environmental health inspections is to protect public health by working to minimize adverse impacts of human activity directly and indirectly on human health.  This is accomplished in part through the inspection and education of businesses.  An inspector uses a set of regulations as a tool to measure the success of compliance and to identify the need for corrections. 

Here you can view inspection reports for establishments inspected by Summit County Public Health. Currently, public access to inspection reports is limited to inspection reports of locally regulated food facilities, school facility inspections, recreational water inspections and violation letters to industries that emit air pollutants. Over time, additional regulated facility types will be added to this site. 



Some Things to Keep in Mind

Any inspection report is a “snapshot” of observations recorded during the time the inspector was at the facility. On any given day, an establishment may have fewer or more violations than noted on the day of the report. Therefore, an inspection report may not be representative of the overall, long-term conditions within an establishment.

It is also important to note that if a violation is cited at a particular operation, such violation is for that location only and not representative of all other operations owned or managed by the same parent company. In our experience, it is unrealistic to expect that complex facilities will always be free of violations. One measure of an operator’s responsiveness is the successful resolution or correction of violations on subsequent inspection reports.


Visitors to this site are cautioned against interpreting the status of a particular facility based on only one report.
