    The environmental factors leading to injuries are often associated with other environmental health risks. For example, home and school construction and furnishing materials can lead to unintentional injuries, and poisoning may result from exposure to chemicals unsafely used or stored. Chemical health threats can have impacts across national borders and so may be more effectively tackled by international cooperation than by individual governments acting alone. As such, in November , the European Union published the EU Decision for Serious Cross Border Threats to Health establishing a number of mechanisms for a coordinated, Europe-wide response with regards to.
