Public health

Penrith Council and NSW Health recently hosted a workshop for public swimming pool and spa operators and environmental health officers.

Forty people attended, including operators from across the Hawkesbury and Penrith local government areas and officers from Penrith, Hawkesbury, Lithgow, Auburn and Blue Mountains councils.

The workshop is part of the new Public Health Act 2010 which took effect on September 1, which aims to prevent the spread of disease and recognises the role of local government in protecting public health.
