WHAT CAN SCHOOLS AND TEACHERS DO TO REDUCE THE PRESENCE OF Mercury in Schools?

Help educate students, other teachers and administrators about the health hazards and environmental fate of mercury; promote proper management and recycling of mercury and mercury-containing products; eliminate the use of mercury wherever possible at schools; prevent mercury spills and know what to do if a spill occurs; promote the use of alternative products that do not contain mercury; and promote energy efficiency.
