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 (IAQ) 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.
Your Office will be measured for volatile organic compounds-VOC’s, temperature, humidity, airborne particulates, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde. There will be a strong focus on airborne particulate matter and carbondioxide.
The range of investigations of indoor air quality problems encompasses complaints from one or two employees to episodes where entire facilities are shut down and evacuated until the events are investigated and problems corrected.
Complaints are often of a subjective, nonspecific nature and are associated with periods of occupancy. These symptoms often disappear when the employee leaves the workplace. They include headache, dizziness, nausea, tiredness, lack of concentration, and eye, nose, and throat irritation.
In approximately 500 indoor air quality investigations in the last decade, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) found that the primary sources of indoor air quality problems are:
• Inadequate ventilation 52%
• Contamination from inside building 16%
• Contamination from outside building 10%
• Microbial contamination 5%
• Contamination from building fabric 4%
• Unknown sources 13%
The IAQ Healthy Office Assessment is a complete Indoor Environment Diagnostic Assessment that includes the physical inspection of the office, building envelope, and ventilation system.
