Activities undertaken to inform SA & NSW residents of LASA services

LASA re-contacted the National Poisons Information Centre in Sydney to remind them that callers from anywhere in Australia who inquire about lead poisoning could be referred to the Lead Advisory Service Australia. LASA was informed for the first time that advising the National Poisons Information Centre did not preclude the need to advise Poisons Information Centres servicing each state. Thus the Poisons Information Centre in Western Australia and the ACT which together mostly handle the calls from South Australia, was contacted for the first time by LASA and now refer Western Australian, ACT and South Australian callers to LASA. More NSW residents have reported referral from NSW Poisons Information Centre this year than previously too, following the reminder call.

LASA was listed in the hard copy of the Adelaide White Pages this year for the first time and in the Sydney White and Yellow pages as usual, although anyone with web access has been able to find the White Pages and Yellow Pages on-line LASA entries for some years.

Every painter in South Australia with training in the management of lead paint was contacted by phone by LASA and advised that they are welcome to advise their clients to check out www.lead.org.au or phone LASA for information and advice on lead paint management.

LASA is constantly approached by journalists and writers for information and in return we request a link to our website which often results in calls (email or phone) to LASA or a mention of the LASA. The following ways of finding out about LASA were reported by our callers for the first time this year:
