As chemical sensitivities are on the rise, and there is a growing awareness that fragrances are harmful to our health, workers advocating for change are succeeding in convincing management to make their workplaces fragrance-free.
Knowing how difficult change can be to effect in all types of business cultures, workers and management who are in the processing of working towards a fragrance-free environment can use some fragrance-free ammunition. Such workplace conversions aren't well publicized at this point, so I have started this page to provide recognition of those workplaces that have converted to fragrance free.
If your workplace is fragrance free, please let me know about it. Please send me the business name, division or branch as applicable, and web address. If your fragrance-free code or announcement is online, I would like to link to that so that other businesses can see how others are doing it. When known, entities below with an asterisk (*) are partially fragrance-free or in the process of converting.
One final point to be made about fragrance-free and other indoor air quality policies: they are worthless if they are not enforced and periodically reviewed.
