p>This month, as well as details of the latest updates to the system, we look forward to our up and coming Social Media training. This is aimed at introducing professionals to what is seen by many as the biggest change in communication since the introduction of the telephone. There is also news of RHE?s involvement in the first Hertfordshire Public Health Conference which is due to take place on December 4th in Welwyn Garden City.

Amongst the documents added to the system this month were new Model Conditions for Pet Vending Licensing, updated Technical Guidance on Hazardous Waste from the Environment Agency and documents to supplement the fireworks licensing procedure. The pending introduction of the new Regulators Code is reflected in changes to the Enforcement Policy Procedure, while there is a new procedure for the Investigation of Work Related Deaths.?
