Risk and Waste Reduction for Schools


Schools are a great place to teach students about hazardous materials management, safety and waste minimization. Compliance with environmental laws is one step in keeping kids safe from common chemical and physical hazards associated with schools. The Hazardous Materials Division has developed and assembled tools for teachers and administrators to use at schools to reduce risks to students and employees.  

In addition to these resources our inspectors are available for "Career Day" presentations to students interested in a career in environmental health. Contact the HMD Duty Specialist for more information at (858) 505-6880.
