Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does a health inspector do?

Health inspectors are public employees that inspect a variety of public places such as restaurants, swimming pools, schools, nursing homes, tattoo parlors, beauty salons, and many other environments. They make sure the sanitary and health standards are met and prevent harm to the general public, workers, the environment, and the property. They investigate health hazards and take actions to improve or eliminate the hazards. They respond to public complaints and other health concerns. They often impose fines to establishments that are not meeting health codes. They also inform management of the violations and provide advice for improvements. They often suggest health and safety programs and provide training on how to identify hazards and on new policies and regulations.

Health inspectors also design programs and work environments to help prevent, control, and remove injury or disease. They look for potential hazards and work to develop more ergonomic equipment. They also test the quality of the air and surrounding environment.

What kind of training does a health inspector need?

Health inspectors typically need an associate or bachelor degree in occupational health, safety, public health, environmental health, or other related area. Some positions require a master degree in industrial hygiene or related field. Health inspectors also learn inspection procedures and applicable laws through on the job training.

Some states require health inspectors to be licensed. Voluntary certifications are offered through many organizations such as the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) or Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP). Certification requirements often include an associate or bachelor degree and passing a written examination. Health inspectors with certification must complete continuing education and become recertified every few years.

What are the prospects for a career as a health inspector?

Employment of health inspectors is expected to grow about as fast as average for all professions, increasing 9% from 2006 to 2016 (1). The increasing public demand for healthy and safe environments will drive job growth.

Job prospects are projected to be good especially for health inspectors with advanced education and extensive experience. Job openings will also arise from the need to replace health inspectors that leave the occupation.

How much do health inspectors make?

As of September 2009, the middle 50% of health inspectors earned annual salaries between $33,640 and $56,066. The highest 10% earned annual salaries of more than $66,275 (2).

A career as a health inspector is a great choice for people interested in ensuring the health and safety of work environments. Health inspectors must be responsible and detail oriented. They must have good communication and interpersonal skills and effectively discuss their reports and give directions for improvement.
