Indoor Air Quality & Ventilation Webinar

Jun 22, 2023

Issues with indoor air quality and ventilation is gaining increased attention. Individuals working in these environments can experience a range of symptoms including eye irritation, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, and a range of respiratory problems.

Several factors contribute to the occurrence of bad indoor air quality, these include poor ventilation, synthetic building materials, infrequent cleaning and maintenance, the presence of mould and pollutants. The impact of these factors is compounded by the fact that many modern buildings are designed to be airtight, which can trap pollutants and exacerbate symptoms.  This can impact not only individual health but also productivity in the workplace. Studies have suggested that individuals who work in buildings with poor air quality are less productive, take more sick leave, and experience higher levels of stress. This, in turn, can lead to reduced profitability for businesses, as well as a lower quality of life for employees.
