Indoor Air Quality
It is all around us, and we breathe it every day to stay alive. But how clean is the air that we breathe? While we know that it contains oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen, there may be other substances in the air around us that we're not aware of. This could include dust, mites, spores, bacteria and hazardous fumes. Our training products on Indoor Air Quality show employees the potentially harmful effects of poor air quality, and will help them prevent, identify and correct air quality problems.
INTERESTING BUILDING AIR QUALITY FACTS - Modern office buildings are generally considered safe and healthful working environments. However, energy conservation measures instituted during the early 1970's have minimized the infiltration of outside air and contributed to the buildup of indoor air contaminants. Investigations of indoor air quality often fail to identify any harmful levels of specific toxic substances. Often employee complaints result from items such as cigarette smoke, odors, low-level contaminants, poor air circulation, thermal gradients, humidity, job pressures, lighting, work-station design, or noise.
