P2 for Hospitals & Health Care Facilities

Organization(s) Narragansett Bay Commission
Project Description NBC's P2 Program worked with an engineering intern from the University of New Hampshire on a series of on-site environmental technical assistance audits of eight Rhode Island hospitals/health care facilities. Each audit focused attention on multi-media environmental issues, pollution prevention, and environmental regulatory compliance and helped to identify issues of importance to hospital environmental, health, and safety personnel. Major environmental issues identified during these audits included: hazardous waste management (including contingency plans, satellite accumulation, labeling, and employee training); universal waste management; spill control procedures; underground tank management; and EPCRA compliance. NBC will be organizing a half-day pollution prevention/environmental compliance educational workshop for all of Rhode Island's healthcare industry in early 2004 to help address these major areas of concern.
