Abstract: If there have been problems with staff understanding verbal communication regarding specific activities that affect indoor air quality (IAQ), or if staff follow-through is a problem, a written IAQ policy statement regarding specific IAQ issues may help prevent future problems.

This appendix presents general considerations related to developing an IAQ policy. In addition, it presents three sample IAQ policies targeted to specific indoor pollutant sources. The first sample is a policy on integrated pest management (IPM) developed by EPA. The second sample is a memo on painting, and includes an information letter to parents. The final sample is a nonsmoking policy, including a sample letter to staff. The nonsmoking policy was developed based on a review of model policies from the American Cancer Society, the American Lung Association, and sample policies from various companies and organizations. The samples presented are only intended as guides, and may be modified in any way to meet the site-specific needs and intent of individual schools.
