Health Inspectors working to ensure the safety of their communities are crucial to understanding and extinguishing a foodborne illness outbreak, however the prospect of becoming involved in a legal setting can often be a daunting thought. What is the role of a health official? Where does liability begin and end? How are health inspector protected?
Marler Clark Epidemiologist Patti Waller and Managing Parntner Bill Marler directed a mock deposition of a Health Inspector at the 2011 Wyoming Environmental Health Association (EHA) conference gave the audience a better understanding of what to expect in a foodborne illness legal investigation.
The Wyoming EHA Annual Education Conference was in Laramie, Wyoming from September 13-15.
