EHA : EHA Yearbook 2010
EHA ANNUAL REPORT 2010 n Strengthening relationships with EHOs and the various sections within SA Health. A significant challenge for the group into 2009-2010 will be informing members of the development of the new Public Health Bill throughout its implementation. Another challenge is continuing to engage EHOs and encourage their participation and input into the Disease Control/Emergency Management SIG. One initiative towards achieving this is to attract informative guest speakers for each SIG and to also provide a forum for EHOs to discuss relevant issues that they face on a day to day basis. Thank you to all the Councils that have hosted the Disease Control/Emergency Management SIG during the 2009- 2010 period, your assistance is greatly appreciated. Jamie Tann MEHA and Adrian Hill MEHA Disease Control/Emergency Management Special Interest Group Co-Convenor and Secretary Wastewater Special Interest Group The focus of the Wastewater Special Interest Group (SIG) for 2009-2010 has largely been around the soon to be released new Wastewater Management Systems Code and implications of the new Planning Residential Code on wastewater management systems. The SIG provides a valuable forum for EHOs to discuss any problems that arise in their day-to-day wastewater management activities and is an excellent mode of communication between EHOs and the Department of Health. It is now a particularly valuable forum for metropolitan Councils also, as discussions often centre around new systems including greywater systems that are more commonly being installed due to recent drought conditions. The SIG holds quarterly meetings and aims to periodically hold meetings in conjunction with tours of relevant organisations and presentations from relevant industry. Next year, the Wastewater SIG hopes to host a guest presentation from the Office of Consumer and Business Affairs and take members on a tour of Veolia to help EHOs to better understand processes undertaken by licensed liquid waste contracting businesses.
