Event Title: Speaker Evening: Jeanette Williams, Building Biologist - How Your Home Could be Affecting Health & Behaviour
Organisation: Northern Beaches ADHD Support Group
Email: nbadhdsupportgroup@hotmail.com
Posted On: 21/09/2018

Speaker Evening: Jeanette Williams, Building Biologist -

Topic: How Your Home Could be Affecting Health & Behaviour

Jeanette will be speaking about the potential toxins in the home and how they can affect health and behaviour – particularly for children.

She will discuss:

· Mould

· Electromagnetic fields from household wiring, street wiring and wired appliances

· Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Energy from wireless devices and mobile phone towers

· Chemicals

· Water – drinking and bathing

· Lead

· Easy changes to make to improve the health of the home and to create a safe haven for the family.

Jeanette is a certified Building Biologist, having undertaken her studies at the Australian College of Environmental Studies. Jeanette is also IICRC certified in Water Restoration. Since 2011 Jeanette has consulted to the largest Building Biology consultancy in Australia, and recently has begun to develop her own practice with Building Biology Sydney. As a Building Biologist Jeanette looks at the built environment, looking for environmental hazards that could potentially be implicated with chronic health issues.

Building Biology encompasses mould and moisture, chemical exposure, water quality and the electrical environment. Much of Jeanette’s work has been in the field of mould and moisture, however the overlap between exposure to mould, chemicals and electromagnetic fields must always be considered. Increasingly indoor air quality assessments for residential and commercial buildings is forming a large body of her work.

Jeanette has extensive field experience, assessing up to six properties every week in both residential and commercial settings. Using testing equipment, laboratory analysis, and visual inspection, along with taking an extensive history of the building and its occupants, enables a Building Biologist to ascertain the potential underlying issues and provide an action plan.

A committee member of the Australasian Society of Building Biologists, Jeanette has compiled the case studies since 2016 for the Mould curriculum for the Australian College of Environmental Studies (ACES). This year Jeanette joined the ACES teaching staff.

Jeanette has been interviewed for newspaper, radio and television on the subject of mould and other indoor environmental hazards and has also conducted training with the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM), training Doctors and other Health Professionals on the subject of Mould Illness.
