Lead-Safe Wisconsin: Public Health Interventions for Lead Poisoning

Local health departments provide services to children and their families who are exposed to lead. The information on this page is for local health department staff members. It includes:

  • The Wisconsin Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention and Control Handbook.
  • Forms and templates for managing the cases of children exposed to lead.
  • A video on how to do a lead risk assessment.

You can find job aids for the Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Surveillance System—the online case management data system—on the HHLPSS Job Aids page. For information on how to submit a claim, view the Medicaid Reimbursement for Lead-Related Services page. Lead investigators can find lead investigation reminders and updates on the 2023 Regulatory Update for Lead Investigators page.


Reporting forms

Some of the links below take you directly to the form. Others take you to a webpage where you can print a PDF. Whenever possible, please fill out the Word document.

Templates for environmental risk assessment

Lead hazard investigators and lead risk assessors from local health departments are required to use the following templates for property investigations in cases of lead-poisoned children. If your health department is using a different template, you may submit it for review and approval by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS).

More information

Wisconsin has a number of statutes and administrative rules with respect to childhood lead poisoning prevention, including those that pertain to local health departments, child care centers, and other facilities and departments. You can also find resources on our Tools for Outreach page.
