Time Reduction in Conducting Point of Sale Real Estate Septic and Well Inspections
The Mahoning County District Board of Health undertook a review of the wastewater program’s septic and well evaluation process. It was determined that due to changes in the health department’s workforce and turnover in the Realtors Association no one could define what constituted a “timely” inspection.
Using a force field analysis and process decision chart, the team came to consensus to complete the evaluations in 10 calendar days.
Following the Plan, Do, Check, Act (PDCA) process, the team met the defined measure and strengthened the relationship with the realtors.
