Eric - EPA's Design for the Environment (DfE) Program has developed a Self-Evaluation Checklist of Best Practices for Auto Refinish Shops and Schools. The checklist is a tool to help businesses and schools evaluate current practices and technologies and identify areas where improvements can be made to protect workers, students and surrounding communities from isocyanates, organic solvents, heavy metals, and other toxic chemicals generated during refinish activities. The checklist covers surface preparation, sanding, paint mixing, spray painting, equipment cleaning and health & safety management. The best practices integrate and address environmental and human health issues. Although the checklist was developed for the collision repair (auto refinish) industry, many of the best practices are applicable to other industries.

I am currently developing a free website where users can create, edit, archive and search for best practices in order to make it even easier for those wishing to improve their environmental practices. I am looking for help from anyone who might be willing to contribute a best practice or two, to help populate the site's database initially. The site should go live (in an early Beta version) later this month, and I will make the site address available to the P2 community at that time. Please feel free to email me directly: email@example.com. If you have any questions regarding this effort, I can be reached directly at (650) 342-5334.
