Compliance with Executive Order 134 - Environmental Impact of Cleaning of Facilities

The Department of Health operates a central office, seven regional offices, and five health care facilities that are engaged in patient care. Executive Order 134 required all State agencies to procure and use cleaning products that minimize the potential impacts to human health and the environment. It also required the agencies to conduct an assessment of their programs to promote environmentally safe cleaning and transition to certain conforming products within specified time periods. We found that the Department was not in compliance with the Executive Order, and recommended actions that would bring it into compliance.
