NEHA (National Environmental Health Association)
The National Environmental Health Association is a 5,000 member
professional society whose membership encompasses the public and the
private sectors, as well as academia, the military and government
agencies. Founded to standardize the professional credentialing of health
practitioners, NEHA states that its
mission is "to advance the
environmental health and protection professional for the purpose of
providing a healthful environment for all." NEHA's mission is
as relevant today as when the organization was established in 1937
and NEHA offers a variety of programs to advance this mission.
These programs include basic science, laws and regulations,
governmental and private programs, and disease and injury
identification, prevention and control.
NEHA provides the latest in relevant
educational material to make sure its members are informed of the
most recent advances in the environmental health field. The
two volume Handbook of Environmental
Edition published in 2002 is a superior example of NEHA's commitment to its
members' education and training.
Two of Norweco’s products, the Singulair
Bio-Kinetic wastewater treatment system and the
Bio-Kinetic wastewater management system (BK 2000) are
pictured and referenced in the handbook,
which is published by NEHA. The artwork and references are contained in
Volume Two, Chapter Six under the Innovative Individual
Wastewater Management Systems section. The handbook is used as a
college textbook suitable for basic and introductory courses in
public and environmental health, medicine, nursing, environmental
pollution, ecology, sanitary and environmental sciences, as well as serving as a guideline for sanitarians
and health department personnel.
Environmental Health has been a standard reference in the
field of public health for over 20 years and is highly regarded.
The new fourth edition has been completely revised and
expanded to reflect the latest developments and newest technologies.
In addition to publishing the handbook, NEHA sponsors seven national credentialing programs
(REHS/RS - Registered Environmental Health Specialist/Registered
Sanitarian, RET - Registered Environmental Technician, CEHT -
Certified Environmental Health Technician, RHSS - Registered
Hazardous Substances Specialist, RHSP - Registered Hazardous
Substances Professional, CFSP - Certified Food Safety Professional,
and National Radon Proficiency Program), an Annual Educational
Conference, technical workshops, publication of the JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH, and
professional continuing education training.
