Air Quality and Ventilation
Air Quality and Ventilation refers to the air quality within buildings, especially when it comes to the health and comfort of the occupants inside. Air quality is impacted by things such as dust, mold, air particulates, and temperature
When indoor air quality is poor the comfort and health of the building’s occupants can be significantly impacted
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Health Administration (OSHA) both warn against the health concerns of low indoor air quality.
Poor air quality and temperature levels can have serious implications for your facility. Breathing poor-quality air or operating in warm temperatures can cause injuries and make your staff less productive.
Keeping your employees comfortable will help reduce the cost of downtime
Heat can greatly affect your employees’ productivity and well-being.
A National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) study found small increases in temperature can make a huge impact on how productive workers are and their human accuracy.
Just 5 degrees of temperature difference can cause major problems – leading to human inaccuracies by more than 300%!
