Areas of Employment

ENVHOs are normally employed in health support environments; however, their duties necessitate assessments of Defence work areas and practices that take them to all areas of Defence operations, both locally and overseas.

ENVHOs with prerequisite operational skills and knowledge may be employed in a number of operational roles. These duties would normally be carried out in the field during but could also be in higher headquarters as part of the planning for such activities. ENVHOs will be required to develop the specialised Ground Defence skills and knowledge to perform their duties in an operational environment

In the field ENVHOs are responsible for ensuring that environmental health and sanitation are of the highest standards within the constraints of the operational context. This may include not only providing the advice but at times actually physically implementing control strategies (pest control, construction and maintenance of field hygiene facilities, etc). ENVHOs can also be employed in the area of disaster support, providing environmental health advice and support not only to the deployed forces but the affected populations.

In most cases ENVHOs are required to carry out their duties with minimum supervision.

Working Conditions

Hazardous working conditions are encountered and the wearing of personal protective equipment may be required. Sometimes environmental health tasks are conducted in the field with limited resources, in support of ADF operations and disaster relief both within Australia and overseas.
