The Chemical Class Approach toward Healthy Buildings
Scientist and public health advocate Dr. Arlene Blum, Founder *Green Science Policy Institute, will introduce the Six Classes of harmful chemicals. Rather than addressing the tens of thousands of chemicals in the market one at a time, the chemical class approach educates architects, designers, and business and government decision makers about chemical families containing many of the hazardous substances commonly found in building materials. With this information, better choices of chemicals can be made, “regrettable substitutions” avoided, and human and ecological health protected.
For those who qualify, 1.5 LU/HSWs are available.
