Last updated 2008

EHN Board President Barb Wilkie was very ill from chemically-induced kidney disease for several years. She passed away May 31, 2011. EHN presents this site both as a tribute and as valuable information. Many links and references will be out of date but Barb's research holds up over time. We will be transferring the site page by page, with updated details, to EHN's main site. If you would like to reach an EHN staff person, please contact us directly.

Indoor Air Quality Guidelines
- Briefer version; full length see NSCC IAQ Policy -

NSCC advocates a pollutant-free environment. It also encourages a scent free environment. The college seeks to maintain the best possible air quality attainable within fiscal, legal and regulatory constraints. In the pursuit of that goal, the following procedures will be implemented.

NSCC community members will mitigate pollutants from idling vehicles, construction projects, sign-making, and other projects affecting air quality.

Product evaluation must take place whenever there is potential for hazardous chemicals being present in any manner such that community members may be exposed.

Air delivery systems will be regularly maintained and inspected.

NSCC community members are asked to refrain from using or wearing scented products while on campus.

Specially designated classrooms are posted as "scent free." NSCC community members are asked to respect these postings.
