Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Institutions are increasingly being asked to accommodate individuals with multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS). Most establishments have chosen to provide such accommodations on a case-by-case basis only. This paper investigates feasible actions that may be taken by institutions to reduce exposure of MCS individuals as well as the general institutional population to pesticides and other substances. Emphasis is placed on procedures that can be instituted on a regular basis and may be combined with case-by-case management for better resolution of problems.
