Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description In 1999, MA OTA produced a draft guidance for schools on implementing an environmental management system. Office staff have been promoting the system approach in a number of towns. The impetus for this work is a result of participation in a Multi-Agency Task Force on Environmental, Health and Safety in Schools, (MATS), which OTA helped to form in 1997. MATS, a forum for agency officials to coordinate related information and work, has promoted the importance of institutionalizing efforts to address Environmental, Health and Safety problems, as opposed to reacting to each issue individually, or on a crisis basis. OTA's guidance recommends a systematic, comprehensive, preventive approach that flows from the top down, involves all levels of staff and stakeholders, and realizes savings.
