Protecting Children While At School

A new standard is being created by the NSF International at the NSSEA that would be the first comprehensive standards to certify health, safety, and environmental aspects of products and equipment used in an educational setting.

These new standards would cover everything; from the materials children come into contact with on a daily basis in a school setting, to standard requirements for chairs, desks, and lab equipment.

This new standard will be developed by involving representation from various stakeholders who would be effected by the scope of the standard as outlined by the NSF.  The overall goal is to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for the children as well as educators.
