SIF tool for digital sanitary Inspections (WHO)

The SIF tool developed by RIVM (based on WHO GDWQ, 2nd ed.) provides a way tot perform sanitary inspections on a tablet or smart phone. Filled-out forms can be saved (as pdf’s) and printed for administrative purposes. A sanitary inspection is an on-site inspection of a water supply to identify actual and potential sources of fecal contamination or microbial risks. The physical structure and operation of the system and external environmental factors (such as latrine location) are evaluated. This information can be used to select appropriate remedial action to improve or protect the water supply in a qualitative and cost-effective manner.

This is a draft version based on the sanitary surveys first published in 1976 (WHO monograph series #63 "Surveillance of Drinking Water Quality"), No rights can be derived from the use of this tool.


Instruction: Save SIF.cdf first on your computer; Then load it as a stand alone tool with the CDF Player for full functionality.
