Everyone deserves to live in a healthy home, regardless of income level or geography.

Safe & Healthy Homes Program

Tulsa Health Department launched in April 2019 a volunteer pilot program that will provide Tulsa County property owners free courtesy inspections of homes and apartment units to ensure a healthy and safe home for their tenants. Qualifying properties will be enrolled as a THD Safe & Healthy Home. Our hope is that property owners and renters will experience the benefits that a healthy and safe living space can provide.

Together we can make Tulsa the healthiest county in the country by providing all our residents safe and healthy dwelling spaces with safety and security measures in place to maintain the occupants’ well-being.

Here are some useful tips for ways you can be that great tenant.

1. Read Your Lease

2. Don’t Break the Lease

3. Pay Your Rent on Time

4. Treat Your Rental Like You Own It

5. Get to Know Your Neighbors .

ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH

Health and well-being are influenced by many environmental factors, including the intentional and unintentional exposure to environmental agents. THD Environmental Health Services works to enforce state laws and city and county regulations to decrease negative environmental factors and health nuisances.

For questions or complaints, please call the THD 918-595-4300.
