This Facility Contains Lead and Other Chemicals Known to the State of California To Cause Cancer and/or Birth Defects Or Other Reproductive Harm.
California Proposition 65 Warning:
California's Proposition 65 has identified hundreds of chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm. See: http://www.oehha.ca.gov/prop65.html for the official list and language of the law.
The law requires that businesses with 10 or more employees warn you prior to knowingly and intentionally exposing you to any of these chemicals when the exposure is over a certain level. Even though we do not have that many employees, and we do not believe we are releasing harmful levels of any such chemicals, we feel it is helpful to alert everyone to potential exposure. While many exposures are associated with industrial activities and chemicals, everyday items and even the air we breathe routinely contain many of these chemicals.
This web page provides warning and information regarding exposures to these chemicals that may occur in this facility. In many instances, we do not have information specific to this facility. Instead we have relied upon the information provided by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment.
The regulations implementing Proposition 65 offer warnings for various circumstances.
California's Proposition 65 (Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986) requires businesses with 10 or more employees to provide warnings prior to exposing individuals to chemicals known to the State to cause cancer, and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm.
These types of chemicals are found within this establishment. This web page provides you with information on what chemicals are present and what your exposures to them might be.
Furnishings, Hardware, and Electrical Components.
Room furnishings and building materials contain formaldehyde, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer. Furniture, foams, brass keys, electrical power cords, carpeting, carpet padding, wall coverings, wood surfaces, and vinyl, contain a number of chemicals, including lead, and formaldehyde, known to cause cancer, and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm. Their presence in these materials can lead to exposures. Certain molds that may be present contain chemicals, including sterigmatocystin, known to the State of California to cause cancer.
Combustion sources such as gas stoves, fireplaces, and barbeques contain or produce a large number chemicals, including acetaldehyde, benzene and carbon monoxide, known to the State of California to cause cancer, and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm which are found in the air of this complex. Any time organic matter such as gas, charcoal or wood is burned, Proposition 65-listed chemicals are released into the air.
Construction and Maintenance Materials.
Construction and maintenance materials contain Proposition 65-listed chemicals, such as roofing materials manufactured with vinyl chloride monomer, benzene and ceramic fibers, which are known to cause cancer, or birth defects or other reproductive harm. Construction materials used in walls, floors, ceilings and outside cladding contain chemicals, such as formaldehyde resin, asbestos, arsenic, cadmium and creosote, which are released as gases or vapors during normal degradation or deterioration, and as dust or particulate when disturbed during repairs, maintenance or renovation, all of which can lead to exposures.
Paint and Painted Surfaces.
Certain paints and painted surfaces contain chemicals, such as lead and crystalline silica, that are known to the State of California to cause cancer, and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm. Lead-based paint chips may be ingested and crystalline silica may be released into the air and lead to exposures.
Certain Products Used In Cleaning And Related Activities.
Certain cleaning products used for special cleaning purposes such as graffiti removal and spot and stain lifters contain chlorinated solvents including perchloroethylene and urinal odor cakes contain paradichlorobenzene which are Proposition 65-listed chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Engine Related Exposures.
Fueling of aircraft plus operation and maintenance of aircraft, and other small internal combustion engines are associated with this airport and flight school. Aircraft piston engine fuel contains lead, and all petroleum based fuels and engine exhaust contain many other Proposition 65-listed chemicals, including benzene, carbon monoxide and, for diesel engines, diesel exhaust, which are known to the State to cause cancer, and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Pest Control and Landscaping.
Pests control and landscaping products used to control insects and weeds contain resmethrin, mycobutonil, triforine and arsenic trioxide which are known to the State to cause cancer and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm.
