by RB Manlangit

Daet, Camarines Norte (13 October) -- Sanitary inspectors from all over the Bicol region met here recently for the 2nd Regional Sanitarian Convention cum Environmental and Occupational Health Seminar and Planning Workshop.

Milave Schneider, Camarines Norte Health Office supervising sanitation inspector and regional president of the League of Sanitation Inspectors of the Philippines Inc. Bicol chapter, said the theme "Sanitarians, Working in Unison in Facing the Challenge of Climate Change" has been aptly chosen for this year's assembly to accentuate the role of sanitary workers in climate change adaptation and mitigation.

Topics discussed include the effects of meteorological hazards like climate change, zero waste management, earthquake, landslide, typhoon and flood.

Schneider said that emergency sanitation was also discussed including sanitary toilet, waste management, safe drinking water, and clean and safe food in the evacuation centers during calamities.

She added that they also tackled liquid waste in order to avoid insects that may bring diseases like malaria, dengue, typhoid diarrhea and others.

Also a visit in the fishing port of Mercedes and in the Bagasbas Beach in Daet was conducted during the activity.

Present during the activity were Engr. William G. Sabater, DOH Bicol regional sanitary engineer, Dr. Arnulfo Salagoste, Camarines Norte provincial health officer, and chairs of committee on health in every local sanggunian across Bicol. (PIA CamNorte) [top]
