About this event

Mercury & Lead: Hidden Toxins in Your School?


Thank you for your interest in this event. We will put out information once it is rescheduled. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Schools should be safe places to learn and work, but in many cases, they are anything but. Some common hazards include:

  • Lead in paint and water
  • Mercury in flooring
  • Excessive heat

These conditions can have a direct impact on staff and student health. Unhealthy schools cause asthma, allergies, headaches, fatigue, nausea, rashes, and chronic illnesses; more medication use by children and staff; learning and behavior difficulties; greater liability for school districts; and lower achievement.
