Here Are Scenarios Happening in the U.S. Right Now
Are YOU struggling with the same issue?
A teacher on the West Coast wrote to us inquiring about laws/regulations that prohibit the use of disinfectants particularly harmful to use in sensitive areas like classrooms and playgrounds:
Hello! I hope you can help me and or possibly direct me in regards to a product that my employer is requiring us to use multiple times a day in the classroom and on playground equipment (when students are not around).
It contains Quaternary Ammonium.
I want to convince the head of school and administration to consider a product on the N list that is green or environmentally friendly as this is harsh for the students and staff. Those required use this Quaternary Ammonium chemical have received chemical burns when it inadvertently touches the skin, which leads me to believe that it is not diluted properly.
All my research says that EPA and CDC "recommend" environmentally friendly disinfectants for schools and daycare centers but I need to know is there any law or act that forbids quaternary compound use in school classrooms and playgrounds.
Thank you so very much for your expertise.
