Prepare yourself for a REAC inspection by knowing the "ABCs" of Exigent Health and Safety!

Stop seeing your next REAC inspection as an unavoidable drain on your property budget. It is possible for you to prepare for it cost-effectively and wisely, and present a compliant property to site inspectors. As a site manager, owner or property manager, advance your business by getting a comprehensive look as to why HUD is rabid about safety and health and maintaining a safe environment for your residents.

The REAC's exigent safety and health defects will be examined in detail in this part of our REAC inspection. By discussing exigent health and safety defects, and applying knowledge not in the rules, you will learn what's most important to HUD.

This webinar by our expert speaker Hank Vanderbeek will provide you a thorough understanding of how REAC tallies a score for exigent health and safety defects under the new REAC Inspection Report under Version 4.0. This training session is approved for one hour of continuing education units and a training certificate will be included at the end of the session. This is an overview program that covers an important topic quickly though such training can be reserved for a full day.

Also, be tuned for another webinar available for the future titled "REAC Maintenance, Focusing Resources for Maximum Impact" for a better understanding of the role of the property and maintenance staff in preparing adequately and thoroughly for the REAC inspection without breaking the bank.
