Campagne pilote de surveillance de la qualité de l'air dans les écoles et crèches en France : Résultats de la première phase

Abstract : A nationwide monitoring system of indoor air quality in public premises, especially with vulnerable populations such as children, has been decided in the frame of the 'Grenelle Environnement'. The first phase of a pilot study took place from September 2009 to June 2010, and involved 160 schools and day-care centres across 13 regions. The other French regions are taking part in a second wave, begun in September 2010. This campaign has focused on several parameters: two chemical pollutants (benzene and formaldehyde), the air stuffiness. In addition, a simple audit of each building was carried out. The results show, with respect to the management values put forward by the French committee for public health (HCSP), that air quality is overall acceptable in most schools and day-care centres which have taken part in this study. Nonetheless, a few cases require additional diagnoses or corrective measures. Furthermore, 16% of classrooms were found to be insufficiently ventilated (25% in elementary schools). The Mayors and School Principals were notified, and were provided means to identify the main sources of pollution as well as to implement remediation measures.
