A Scent-free Work Environment

CAUT supports and promotes a scent-free work environment.

For many people, exposure to products containing fragrances pose a serious health risk.

Symptoms, ranging from mild to severe, may include migraines, headaches, eye, ear or nose irritation, throat tightening or irritation, dizziness, nausea, respiratory impairment, skin allergies, muscle and joint pain, fatigue, depression and high blood pressure.

To ensure a safe and healthy working environment at CAUT, products that are scented (such as hand lotions, perfumes or aftershave) should not be used when attending CAUT events or while working in the CAUT office.

Approved by the CAUT Council, April 2009.
