Nirrumbuk environmental health program

 

Overview

The aim of this program is to provide complete environmental health services to the four major Indigenous communities and 72 active outstations in the Kullarri (Broome) region of Western Australia.

This program has two parts. The first part involves the work of an Environmental Health Officer (EHO), employed by Nirrumbuk to monitor, evaluate and report on environmental health matters. The EHO makes sure that work is carried out according to regulations and acts.

The second part of this program involves direct work carried out in communities and outstations. Routine work is done by an Environmental Health Worker, while special jobs are done by a roving crew under the guidance of an environmental health foreman.

The types of work are:

Nirrumbuk's dust control and dog health programs both feature in The West Australian Indigenous storybook (links below).

This program is a partnership between Nirrumbuk Aboriginal Corporation and the Health Department of WA.
