Pool & Hot Tub/Spa Inspections
Inspections are an essential part of every state or local environmental health aquatic program. Analyzing data collected during inspections of public aquatic venues can help these programs examine immediate closures and violations of public health code and help prioritize efforts to protect public health. For example, environmental health practitioners can conduct more frequent, or risk-based, inspections of aquatic facilities (and their venues) with a history of immediate closures and educate operators about proper operation and maintenance related to the most frequently identified violations. This is especially important for programs, whose tightening budgets require them to make strategic decisions on how to best use their limited resources to effectively protect the public’s health.
