Abstract

The most effective and fundamental factors in educational environments for physical and mental growth and student learning are focusing on physical, health, and safety factors. Inattention to these facts can create adverse effects on the learning process and on students’ health. In this regard, the present study was conducted with the aim of determining the environmental health and safety standards of schools in Qasr-e-Shirin City in 2016 and 2017. This study was a descriptive cross-sectional study that was carried out in 2016 and 2017. All men’s school of the city (10 places) was selected as study population. Sampling was done by census method. To collect the required information, a standard checklist was designed based on the Iranian School Health Regulations. The results showed that the 40% of schools were environmental healthily status, and 10% for safety. Also, favorable conditions for classroom environment were determined about 80%, and 100% of the school area was proportional to the number of students. The health conditions in the 90% of school buffets were undesirable. It was found that Qasr-e-Shirin’s schools had improper environmental health and safety standards, and consequently, these areas need serious attention from the educational and health departments.
