Hazard 15 - Domestic Hygiene, Pests and Refuse

This hazard covers hazards which can result from:

Pests create a risk of cross-contamination and infection, carry disease and can infect food and surfaces.

Structural defects, such as broken vents to suspended timber floors, can enable the entry of pests and rodents to the dwelling.

There are also instances where rats have gnawed through plastic covers to wall ventilators. Urban rat infestations show an association with poor environments and areas of poor quality or multi-occupied housing.

Vulnerable Group: All ages
