Heidi undertook and completed the tasks with diligence, accuracy and professionalism. The complexities and challenges of an exceptionally busy hospital environment required Heidi to utilise strong skills of communication, decision making and problem solving in order to achieve the outcomes. I can highly recommend Heidi as a waste/resource recovery and environmental sustainability consultant.

The Solution

Epworth commissioned Heidi Fog to conduct an audit of all resources collected for recycling and disposal from their Geelong hospital across one 24-hour period.

The prime focus for the audit was:

  • A contribution to the Epworth Health Strategy 2018-2022 vision and purpose

  • Identification of cost savings opportunities from resource efficiencies and actions needed to achieve these

  • A resource for setting and / or reaching Epworth’s benchmarks of resource recycling and disposal across resources streams and key indicators

  • Determine contamination rates of current resource streams

  • Investigating requirements and opportunities for additional resource streams

  • Identifying group and local opportunities to maintain resources in the resource cycle
