One of the main environmental health concerns for nurses is the use of hazardous substances within the healthcare industry.  Chemicals used for sterilization or compounds found in medical devices may have an adverse affect on health especially when there is prolonged exposure.  These kinds of hazards are a liability to the health of both medical professionals and patients.  ANA advocates educating nurses about potential chemical exposure and working to create safer healthcare settings.
