The Denver-based National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) has researched and carefully crafted a series of new policy statements in response to concerns from environmental health professionals and industry.
The full policy statements are available at https://www.neha.org/government-affairs/neha-policy-statements . NEHA  represents more than 6,600 governmental, private, academic, and uniformed services sector environmental health professionals in the U.S. and its territories and internationally.
Food safety is among  the items topping NEHA’s newly released policy statements including:
“One of our responsibilities is to raise the voice of the environmental health profession on issues our members and leadership have identified as concerns,” said David Dyjack, DrPH, CIH, NEHA executive director. “Our team of subject matter experts is able to conduct the research on best practices on behalf of local, state, territorial, and tribal areas and provide recommendations about how to protect public health.”
Each statement has been vetted by NEHA and adopted by the NEHA Board of Directors as official statements of the association. The policy statements are shared with local, state, and federal policy makers, including both the executive and legislative branches and relevant environmental and public health boards. NEHA policy statements remain active for three years.
