Safer Chemical Policies

Project Description:

The ChemTRAC grant will support the Coalition in increasing the number of safer chemical products used within health care facilities and the number of small businesses in Toronto who sell products and services with safer chemicals, with a specific emphasis on ChemTRAC chemicals. The project will initially engage the University Health Network, followed by other Toronto health care institutions, with education and promotion of toxics reduction occurring throughout the city of Toronto to reach workers and business owners. A ‘Safer Chemical Policy Alliance’ will be developed to help promote this messaging and will include like-minded organizations as leaders and successful supporters of safer chemicals policies.
