About Sanitarian Services
Sanitarian Services is primarily occupied with enforcing laws, rules and regulations for maintaining and promoting community hygiene; however they are increasingly orienting themselves to accomplishing their goals by education, enlightenment, and persuasion. Sanitarians are more concerned with the development of sanitary standards and technical aspects of engineering, construction, and supervision of operators or various facilities and techniques which are basically design entities and which are conducted toward improvement of living conditions in communities. Knowledge has so advanced our understanding of environmental hygiene that virtually every entity in our environment has come under the scrutiny of public health.
Effective June 20, 2002, the Louisiana Sanitary Code was codified and re-promulgated as "Title 51. Public Health-Sanitary Code". Present and future updates to the code can be found in the Louisiana Register.
