If you plan to start a business in the health industry, you know you need certain business health licenses. But you may not be aware that you need a health permit even if your business isn’t obviously in healthcare.

For example, did you realize you need a health license if you plan to open a hair salon or cosmetology service? Because there are sanitary issues at play in this type of business, your local business licenses, permits & tax agency wants to ensure you’re keeping your equipment and facility safe and sanitary for customers.

Who Needs a Health License?

There are a variety of types of businesses that require health permits, including:

  • Adult Day Care
  • Asbestos Contractor's License
  • Bakery License
  • Barber Shop License
  • Cosmetology License
  • Dairy License
  • Day Care License
  • Drug Device and Cosmetic Registration
  • Egg License
  • Food Establishment Permit
  • Food/Beverage License
  • Health License
  • Irrigation Contractor's License
  • Lead Contractor's License
  • Meat License
  • Pest Control / Exterminator License
  • Pharmacy License
  • Salon License
  • Swimming Pool License
  • Tanning Facility License

Keep in mind: you may need more than one type of business license, so make sure you know of all the different types of permits and licenses you need to operate your business.

What Else Do I Need to Know?

Most of these types of businesses will also require an inspection with the health license. Your facility will be inspected before you open to ensure that you’re meeting all the health and safety requirements for your type of business.

Then after you have been approved for your health business license, you may have surprise inspections periodically. The purpose of these is to catch you unaware, to see if you keep things as tidy and sanitary when you aren’t expecting the inspector.

Many businesses fail these surprise inspections, so make sure you always run a tight ship so that you pass with flying colors.
