The IAQ Video Network releases another educational production about an important environmental, health and safety (EHS) topic.

Phoenix, AZ, August 12th, 2018 -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of their latest educational video. Their newest production discusses Western Red Cedar and a chemical that is naturally found in the wood known as plicatic acid.


“Exposure to plicatic acid from Western Red Cedar dust can cause an allergic reaction and trigger asthma in some people,” said Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates and the IAQ Video Network. “According to the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries, there is no way to predict who will become sensitized to plicatic acid so it is important to limit the exposures of all workers. We hope this new video helps to educate workers that may be exposed to this type of lumber that is commonly used for outdoor construction projects.'


This educational video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that work to protect and enhance the public's health and safety. Sponsors include EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Clark Seif Clark, Zimmetry Environmental and Healthy Indoors Magazine to name a few.
