EHA : Yearkbook 2009
EHA YEARBOOK 2009 15 Corporate Reports In 2008-2009 EHA continued to achieve its mission of strategic importance in bringing the world’s best practice in environmental health to the forefront. EHA continues to be the independent Australian accrediting body in tertiary education for environmental health degree courses. With more than 10 universities in Australia now providing accredited degree courses in Environmental Health, our aim is to continue to support our education partners and to promote the development of environmental health education. EHA as a Registered Training Organization (RTO) held its inaugural meeting in December 2008 to examine ways in combining our three independent emergency management courses and workshops (Victoria, SA and Qld). The aim is to nationalize this popular workshop into recognized units of competences for all States of Australia. In 2008 the Victorian Branch also received a grant from the Victorian Department of Human Services to develop and implement the registered training course, Food Act Legal Management. Our aim is to continue to improve upon the delivery of all our workshops and seminars by restructuring these courses into registered units of competency. The status of the Australian environmental health workforce has been a focal point for many state jurisdictions. The Victorian Department of Human Services with the support of enHealth commissioned a study into the roles and responsibilities of EHOs in rural and urban Australia while EHA jointly with Queensland Health undertook a comprehensive study into the organizational risk of employing under-qualified or unqualified EHOs. An organizational risk management resource guide was developed for local government on the assessment of organisational risks associated with the selection of personnel to undertake the range of required local government environmental health services. Internally, a major milestone has been achieved with EHA completing a comprehensive HR review of its staff. The EHA National Conference will be held from November 11 - 13 , 2009 in Hobart and once again, it promises to be a spectacular event with a line up of top class speakers. Finally, the beginning of the 2008-2009 financial year coincided with the pinnacle of the 2008-2009 global financial crisis. The effects of this global financial crisis played a significant role in our business operations, dramatically affecting our sponsorship, membership and professional development income streams. Coupled with previously earmarked growth and development of the organisation and the long overdue review of the organisation’s HR requirements, the result was a net loss of $ 283 , 897. Despite this loss, our focus on membership benefits and services remains paramount, and in this very challenging environment, EHA will continue to evolve and adapt to meet all challenges head on.
