Medina County Health Department inspects school buildings and playground equipment, if present, twice per year, in accordance with Ohio Department of Health (ODH) guidelines and Ohio Revised Code 3707.26. Our inspectors look at the physical condition of the buildings, overall building sanitation, and the overall condition and safety of the school playground equipment. This is done in an effort to assure the health and safety of school students and school staff. The school cafeterias are inspected as part of our Food Protection Program.
The following are some examples of the things our inspectors look for during a routine school building/playground inspection:
Grounds & Building Exterior:
School Indoor Environments:
Specialty Classrooms (Science, Visual Arts, Industrial Arts):
Indoor Athletic Facilities and Locker Rooms:
