InterNACHI developing an Occupant Hazard Recognition Primer.


In keeping with InterNACHI’s consumer protection goals, member risk management efforts, and insurance cost reduction steps, InterNACHI has contracted with several home safety experts to develop an Occupant Hazard Recognition Primer for home inspectors.

This short educational course will help InterNACHI members recognize safety issues such as electrical defects, carbon monoxide risks, improper stair handrails and spindle spacing, firewall compromises, trip hazards, lack of smoke detectors, child safety issues, obvious potential environmental concerns, and more.

With the best interests of the home buying client in mind, we hope that completing InterNACHI’s online, photo-based version of this primer will become an additional membership requirement for 2007.

And like other InterNACHI educational tools designed to help our entire industry, InterNACHI’s online Occupant Hazard Recognition Primer will be free and available to all inspectors.

InterNACHI's Occupant Hazard Recognition Primer is part of The InterNACHI Safe House Campaign, a joint project of InterNACHI, The InterNACHI Foundation, The United States Fire Administration (part of FEMA), and the Maryland State Fire Marshall's Office.
