For agricultural inspectors, an average day typically involves checking on equipment, facilities, and commodities, as well as making sure that everything is up-to-par with the current health, quality and safety laws. Daily tasks could include examining various agricultural products, such as food, to make sure that they are up to safety code standards; imposing government regulations on various workers and companies, ensuring that they understand what is expected; investigating any potential violations of health codes and distributing health and safety grades; and running quality control on various food and agricultural goods. They also work with fishing and logging operations in this sense.

Overall, it is an agricultural inspector’s duty to make sure that everything is at the standard expected and required by law.
