Healthy Housing Inspection Manual
This manual takes environmental health professionals and housing managers, specialists, and inspectors through the elements of a holistic home inspection. It is also a useful reference tool for nurses, outreach workers, and others who are interested in preventing illness and injury due to residential health and safety hazards. The manual addresses the broad range of housing deficiencies and hazards that can affect residents’ health and safety. Its purpose is to: improve communication and collaboration among public health professionals, housing professionals, property owners and property managers; increase the understanding of the relations among exposure to hazardous agents, conditions in the home, and adverse health outcomes; and improve the ability of programs to address an array of housing deficiencies in an efficient, effective, and timely manner. Section 1, the Healthy Housing Model Resident Questionnaire (a voluntary health assessment), should be completed first to collect information that cannot be determined visually. Information from the questionnaire can provide important clues that point to housing deficiencies. Section 2, the Visual Assessment Data Collection Form, should be used to collect information that can be determined without asking questions of a resident. This form includes detailed assessment of exterior housing, kitchen, bathroom, and living area, as well as a general building information. Aappendices: a data dictionary that defines housing deficiencies listed in the Visual Assessment Data Collection Form; a cross-reference to code provisions in the 2003 International Property Maintenance Code (2003 IPMC); and additional resources.
