Home*a*syst; an environmental risk-assessment guide for the home (NRAES 87 - FRONT MATTER ONLY)
Home*A*Syst is a confidential, self-assessment program you can use to evaluate your home and property for pollution and health risks. In every home—large or small, new or old, city or country—there are potential pollution sources that can affect the health of your family, your community, or the environment. The eleven chapters in Home*A*Syst cover essential topics that every resident or homeowner should understand. Each chapter contains key points, along with tables of assessment questions, to help you understand which risks may apply to your situation. For some topics, this guidebook offers all the information you need to minimize or eliminate a pollution risk. For others, it provides a starting point and helps you locate further information and assistance. Keep in mind that laws and regulations can vary by state, county, city, or town. Check with local officials to make sure that your home practices or changes you plan to make comply with the law. DUE TO OUSTANDING COPYRIGHT ISSUES OR CLEARLY IDENTIFIED OUT-OF-DATE PRACTICES (E.G. SAFETY CONCERNS), ONLY THE FRONT MATTER (E.G. COVER, ToC, ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS, ETC) ARE PROVIDED HERE AT THIS TIME.
