Welcome to the Environmental Health Inspection Website

The mission of environmental health inspections is to protect public health by working to minimize adverse impacts of human activity directly and indirectly on human health. This is accomplished in part through the inspection and education of businesses. An inspector uses a set of regulations as a tool to measure the success of compliance and to identify need for corrections. The internet offers an opportunity to share information which may support you in being a well-informed consumer.

Environmental health sanitarians in the local health department perform a wide variety of environmental public health functions which include inspections of food facilities, water recreation facilities, tattoo and body piercing establishments, and rental housing. Here you can view inspection reports for establishments inspected by the City of Kent Health Department.

The City of Kent is working to make inspection reports of regulated facilities more accessible to the public. Over time, additional regulated facility types will be added to this site. Currently, online access to inspection reports is limited to locally regulated food facilities and water recreational facilities.

Please keep in mind that any inspection report is a “snapshot” of observations recorded during the time the inspector was at the facility. On any given day, an establishment may have fewer or more violations than noted on the day of the report. Therefore, an inspection report may not be representative of the overall, long-term conditions within an establishment. It is also important to note that if a violation is cited at a particular operation, such violation is for that location only and not representative of all other operations owned or managed by the same parent company. In our experience, it is unrealistic to expect that complex facilities will always be free of violations. One measure of an operator’s responsiveness is the successful correction of violations on following inspection reports.


Visitors to this site are cautioned against interpreting the status of a particular facility based on only one report. While every effort is made to keep the information up-to-date and ensure that it is accurate, the City of Kent Health Department is not responsible for discrepancies between information posted here and the actual inspection reports maintained on file at the City of Kent Health Department office.
