P2 Assistance for Hospitals & Health Care Fac.

Organization(s) Narragansett Bay Commission
Project Description Utilizing funds obtained through a P2 Incentives for States Grant (PPIS) award, NBC will be working with Rhode Island Hospitals and Health Care facilities in 2003 to identify P2 opportunities and assist them with environmental regulatory compliance.

During the summer months of 2003 NBC will be conducting a series of on-site environmental technical assistance site visits of at least five local hospitals/health care facilities. Each audit will focus on multi-media environmental issues, P2, and environmental regulatory compliance. In addition to P2, a major focus of this project will be to assist RI’s health care industry with understanding and complying with environmental regulations associated NBC, RCRA and EPCRA requirements.

Using the findings/results of these audits NBC plans to organize and sponsor a P2/environmental compliance educational workshop for all of Rhode Island's health care industry in the fall of 2003. Information collected, as part of the overall project will be used to measure the success these education efforts have on the environmental performance of local health care industry and to help identify and quantify what should be considered "superior environmental performance." Health care facilities that achieve a level of superior performance may then be recognized through NBC’s environmental awards and recognition programs.
