Abstract:

Inventory booklets were administered to Environmental Health incumbents during the period February through April 1978. The results of this survey are based on responses from 481 respondents of 77 percent of the 624 personnel assigned to this career ladder worldwide. Overall, members in this career ladder, as a whole, perform highly homogeneous jobs that cover the total spectrum of environmental health protection functions. Two major clusters were identified General Environmental Health Personnel which comprised 79 percent of the survey sample, and Personal Health Protection Personnel which comprised nine percent of the sample. Two small independent job types were also identified which dealt with water analysis and sanitation surveys and with radiological health protection. Each skill level group performed a relatively large common core of environmental health tasks. Many of the technical tasks, especially those related to noise contol, were common across all DAFSC groups. The job performed by 5-skill level personnel was almost exclusively technical in nature, encompassing the full spectrum of environmental health responsibilities. In contrast, the much broader and more difficult 7-skill level job was evenly focused on technical and supervisory functions. Superintendents performed primarily a managerial function but also performed a broad range of technical functions.
