Safer Schools and Children
Young children are a special concern when it comes to health risks of hazardous substances. Pound for pound, children breathe more air, drink more water, and eat more food than adults. They also put hands and toys in their mouths, crawl on the floor, and play on the ground being exposed to toxic substances in a way adults aren't.
