A large number of people occupy institutions daily; be it schools, hospitals, health centres, prisons, lock ups, daycares centres, infirmaries or others.

The environmental condition of the facilities can alter or impact the overall health status of the occupants, be it the inmate, pupil, resident, patient or staff.

Under the environmental health programme, the standards of these facilities are monitored with a view to facilitate and maintain compliance with the applicable guidelines and standards. This done is through frequent inspections by the Public Health Inspector in the respective parishes and supported by the regions quality assurance and internal auditing programme.
