The UK Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) and Improving air quality
At the 8 February 2018 meeting of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) National Occupational Safety and Health Committee (NOSHC) the Head of Policy of The UK Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) Tony Lewis gave a presentation on improving air quality which is essential to everyone’s health wherever they live in the world.
CIEH believes that the following need to be achieved:

- A new Clean Air Act
- Address poor indoor air quality
- A proper air quality strategy from DEFRA!
- Effective strategies to address the health and wider societal effects of poor air quality
- Public health, environmental health and occupational health teams should
be working together to provide advice and guidance
- Tackling poor air quality should be a priority for local authorities
- New guidance for the Planning Inspectorate is urgently needed
- A national transport strategy and infrastructure that seeks to reduce air pollution
- A modal shift towards zero emission vehicles
- Provision of ultra-low NOx emission boilers in all new developments
