Description
 
Scientific studies have shown that because children劌製 bodies are still developing, they can be more vulnerable than adults to certain environmental hazards, including air pollutants, pesticide residues on food, contaminants in drinking water, and toxic chemicals in the home. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has made protecting children劌製 health part of its mission by establishing a policy in 1995 to ensure that the agency consistently considers children in its actions and creating the Office of Children's Health Protection (OCHP) to support those efforts. In 2010, GAO found that EPA had not fully utilized OCHP and other child-focused resources to protect children劌製 health. This report determines (1) the extent to which EPA has implemented GAO劌製 2010 recommendations on children劌製 health protection; and (2) the role, if any, that OCHP has played in ensuring that key EPA program offices consider children劌製 health protection in their regulatory activities. Table and figures. This is a print on demand report.
