SAFETY AND PERMITS
The California State Charter and the California State Department of Health Services have designated the Environmental Health and Safety Office as the Local Enforcement Agency (LEA) for all properties owned by the Regents of the University of California. EH&S works in concert with the Orange County Health Department on all public health programs. However, EH&S retains regulatory authority on campus property for the food safety program. Enforcement activities are accomplished through Educational Enforcement programs.
Local Enforcement Agency (LEA): Local Health Department that enforces State and local health codes.
Enforcement Programs: A program of training programs and on-site
inspections designed to accomplish compliance through education than through
enforcement strategies. Enforcement strategies are used when education
efforts fail to bring about an appropriate level of compliance with State
codes and University policies.
