Why should maintenance staff be involved in school IPM?  This module has the answer. Maintenance staff are the only staff members who regularly see every remote part of the school environment, and work with all other staff members as part of their duties.  Thus, they can have a big influence on the healthy learning environment in a school.  This module specifically designed for maintenance staff, explains the importance of routine, proactive maintenance of buildings and property to maintain structural integrity and pest entry.  Key elements of IPM such as sanitation, pest-proofing, monitoring and inspection are discussed.
