Addressing Chemicals of Concern: Furniture Purchasing Can Lead to Creating a Healthier Environment: March 31, 2016

Well documented scientific research has clearly shown that the chemical flame retardants, widely used in upholstered furniture, are harmful to public health and provide no fire safety benefit. Due to a change in regulations and a shifting market, higher education institutions can now take concrete steps toward reducing risk and promoting a safe and healthy indoor environment by purchasing furniture that meet the necessary fire safety codes without harmful chemicals.
This presentation will inform you about the chemicals and materials of concern used in furniture, the latest information on the new flammability regulations, ways to reduce exposure to these toxic chemicals. The Center for Environmental Health will review many of the eco-labels and provide concrete purchasing tips.
 
In addition, Harvard University will provide a case study with general guidelines for how to easily procure flame retardant free furniture in a cost-neutral or even cost-saving manner.
