According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or “CDC”; Measuring amounts of hazardous substances in our environment in a standard way, tracing the spread of these over time and area, seeing how they show up in human tissues, and understanding how they may cause illness is critical. The National Environmental Public Health Tracking Network is the start of that system.

What this author likes about this site is that information can be tracked over time for both state and local areas which will become richer over time. SafeSourcing will be adding links and rss feeds to this website that will display in the alerts section of our website www.safesourcing.com because we believe that information of this type can be a great measurement tool over the long term in support of the positive effects that better procurement practices can have relative to both product and environmental safety.
