The IAQ Video Network releases another educational production about important environmental, health & safety (EHS) issues.

Phoenix, AZ, January 18th, 2015 -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of their latest educational video.  Their newest production discusses the different types of antimicrobial pesticides.  


According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), antimicrobial pesticides are substances or mixtures of substances used to destroy or suppress the growth of harmful microorganisms on inanimate objects and surfaces. Antimicrobial products contain about 275 different active ingredients and are marketed in several formulations: sprays, liquids, concentrated powders and gases.


Approximately one billion dollars are spent each year on a variety of different types of antimicrobial products. More than 5000 antimicrobial products are registered with the EPA and sold in the marketplace and nearly 60% of these products are registered to control infectious microorganisms in hospitals and other healthcare environments.


“Antimicrobial products are divided into two categories, non-public health products and public health products,” said Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network.  “The categories are based on the type of microbial pest against which the product works.  The more commonly used public health antimicrobials include sterilizers, disinfectants, sanitizers, antiseptics and germicides. We hope this new video helps to shed some light on antimicrobial pesticides.”


This educational video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that work to protect the public’s health. Sponsors include: EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Clark Seif Clark, Zimmetry Environmental, Indoor Environmental Consultants, Maine Indoor Air Quality Council and the 2015 Northeast IAQ & Energy Conference to name just a few.
