Welcome to Public Health Inspections

Our mission is to protect the health of Denver by ensuring that food service establishments, child care facilities, residential health, noise, lead, emergency vehicles, body art establishments, boarding homes, and pools are in compliance with the respective laws while providing public education to consumers and technical assistance to businesses. As part of the Department of Environmental Health, we are committed to resolving situations posing the greatest risk to the public health. We seek to render a high level of customer responsiveness and engage in industry partnerships and training efforts through regular inspections and assessments.
