DPH encourages schools to protect indoor air quality

Apr 24th, 2012 | By | Category: Air pollution, Health

In recognition of National Healthy Schools Day on April 24th, the Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH) is encouraging schools to promote a healthy learning environment, and is offering resources to implement and maintain a nationally recognized indoor air quality program.

More than 880 Connecticut schools have implemented the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Indoor Air Quality Tools for Schools program with assistance from DPH. Tools for Schools provides materials and guidance at no-cost to help schools implement an indoor air quality management program. This simple, inexpensive, team-oriented program focuses on many low-cost or no-cost solutions that address factors that contribute to poor indoor air quality, such as air pollutants or poor ventilation.
