Homes and Communities

Since there is a higher proportion of environmental health problems in the highly concentrated urban area, most of the resources, financial, and personnel, will be typically utilized in a series of programs within these areas. These programs will include:

  • • Lead poisoning prevention from paint program
  • • Healthy homes inspection program
  • • Rodent and insect control programs inside the home and the immediate environment
  • • Pesticide control programs
  • • Injury control programs
  • • Poison control programs
  • • Indoor air quality control programs including secondhand smoke
  • • Mold control programs
  • • Appropriate housekeeping programs

In the agricultural setting special programs, especially where migrant laborers are used, will be directed at the control and proper disposal of agricultural chemicals, safe drinking water, safe and healthy housing, and injury control especially as it relates to agriculture. Since migrant labor housing may be in older buildings, lead-based paint could be a serious concern.
