SAFE-D Best Practices Guide

Each of the more than 3,000 environmental public health programs across the country collects and manages aquatic information differently.

The Standard for Aquatic Facility Environments – Data (SAFE-D) model is a standardized format for publishing aquatic facility inspection information across jurisdictions consistently. The design is based on the critical fields within the Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC) and a scan of more than 1,000 environmental health agency inspections and has already been tested in four demonstration sites.

The model allows jurisdictions to accurately share and compare aquatic facility inspection data from numerous agencies to:

  • Make informed decisions
  • Share data with your community
  • Advocate for support using data
