Preventing exposure to toxins in the home

  • Weather permitting, ask the client to leave windows open 30-60 minutes prior to your visit to increase ventilation in the home
  • Ask your client to not smoke within 60 minutes prior to your visit, and report to your supervisor if necessary
  • Ensure that any water leaks within the home are reported to your supervisor

  • I will report to my supervisor if the indoor air quality in my client’s home is unsafe
  • I am aware that I can leave my client’s home if I feel that the air quality inside the home is unsafe
  • I know to contact my supervisor immediately if I feel it is unsafe for me to proceed
