The purpose of this procedure is to advise the campus community when materials are used inside buildings which either contain toxins or emit
odor. The campus will receive notification via the Facility Services "Airborenirritants" e-mail list. All posting will be
made 48 hours prior to the use of the material, except for emergencies. Materials include but are not limited to the use of all insecticides,
paint, and carpet glues.
Facility staff will email the website administrator and the work control coordinator this information: schedule date, exact location for
treatment, procedure and substance used. If this schedule is missed, then Facility Services staff will make every effort to reschedule work
to allow proper notification. Exceptions to this process will only be made for urgent situations as determined by the Director of Facility
Services. The work control coordinator will post this information to the Facility Services "Airborenirritants" e-mail list daily by 5 p.m.
as needed. As an added precaution, Facility Services will be using non-VOC paint to minimize irritations. Non-VOC paint is designed
specifically for classrooms and hospital environments.
The "Airborenirritants" e-mail list administrator will post the notice as an urgent need after approval from the Director Facility Services.
For pest infestation, all efforts will be made to schedule pest control treatment after 5:00 pm. However, in extreme situations of pest
infestation, it may be necessary to treat the situation sooner. If quick treatment is necessary, the situation will be considered an emergency
and coordinated through Human Resources. Facility Services staff will try to mitigate pest infestations before using the pest control
services during working hours.
This procedure was created to ensure the health and safety of the campus community and in consideration of those who have sensitivity to toxins
and odorous materials.
