U.S. EPA releases environmental health program guidelines for schools

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released a set of guidelines to help states establish and maintain environmental health programs for schools. Part of EPA’s Healthy Schools program, “Voluntary Guidelines for States: Development and Implementation of a School Environmental Health Program” is aimed at states, school districts, K–12 schools, and individuals, and can be adapted for other school-related institutions, such as childcare centres.

The guidelines address a wide range of environmental health issues of concern to Americans and Canadians including: indoor air quality,drinking water issues, safety hazards related to improperly stored or managed chemicals, natural day lighting, acoustics, and other issues relating to the performance of building occupants.
