Welcome

The Idaho Environmental Health Association members include environmental health professionals, industrial hygienists, consultants, solid waste operators, and other environmental health professionals. We promote a more competent and motivated workforce by encouraging our members to express their opinions and to learn from each other.

The organization provides an opportunity and stimulus for professional growth; promotes high standards of conduct and qualifications; strives for increased recognition of environmental health professionals as a group rendering service vital to the health and well-being of the public; and continues to affiliate with national organizations with similar objectives and programs.

Upcoming Webinars


Environmental Quality Index (EQI)
EPA Tools and Resources Webinar

January 18, 2017 from 1:00 TO 2:00 pm (MST)

The difficulties in examining the many broad-based environmental factors impacting human health outcomes are increasingly recognized, with exposures to harmful and benign substances occurring simultaneously.

An EQI for all counties in the United States for the time period 2000-2005 was developed, which incorporated data for five environmental domains: air, water, land, built, and socio-demographic. The primary goal in creating the EQI is to use it as a composite environmental indicator for research on human health.

__________

Disinfectant Residuals
EPA's Small Drinking Water Systems Webinar Series

January 31, 2017 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm (MST)

This webinar is designed for those involved with small public water systems.  Topics cover how to develop a disinfectant residual monitoring plan and the reasons for representative monitoring.

A certificate for one continuing education contact hour is offered.
