Environmental Health Disaster Management
25 - 30 August 2013, Rydges Southbank Townsville.
Environmental health and disaster management professionals from across the world have a critical function in mitigating public health risks during a response to a disaster. To ensure environmental health and disaster management professionals are adequately equipped to prepare for, respond to, recover from, and mitigate the adverse impacts of disasters, the International Federation of Environmental Health (IFEH), Environmental Health Australia (Qld) Inc., the USA Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Environmental Health Association (USA) have worked together to develop this Australian course.
This course will identify the critical role you, as an environmental health professional may have in mitigating environmental health risks from a disaster. This includes the need to conduct assessments to identify and address key risks such as those relating to drinking water, shelters, communicable diseases, food safety, wastewater, disease-causing vectors, solid waste and hazardous materials.
