Receives general supervision (Environmental Health Specialist I) or direction (Environmental Health Specialist II) from assigned supervisory or management personnel.  Exercises no direct supervision over staff.


Environment Health Specialist I: This is the entry-level, non-registered classification in the professional Environment Health Specialist series.  Initially under close supervision, incumbents learn and perform routine environmental inspection and enforcement duties while working toward a State of California Registration as an Environmental Health Specialist. As experience is gained, assignments become more varied and complex; close supervision and frequent review of work lessen as an incumbent demonstrates skill to perform the work independently.  Positions at this level usually perform most of the duties required of the positions at the Environmental Health Specialist II level, but are not expected to function at the same skill level and usually exercise less independent discretion and judgment in matters related to work procedures and methods.   Work is usually supervised while in progress and fits an established structure or pattern.  Exceptions or changes in procedures are explained in detail as they arise.

Environmental Health Specialist II: This is the journey-level registered classification in the professional Environment Health Specialist series. Positions at this level are distinguished from the Environmental Health Specialist I level by possession of a Registered Environmental Health Specialist certification issued by the State of California and performance of the full range of duties as assigned, working independently, and exercising judgment and initiative. Positions at this level receive only occasional instruction or assistance as new or unusual situations arise and are fully aware of the operating procedures and policies of the work unit.
