The air quality in your workplace, or home, plays a key role in the safety and comfort of technicians, machine operators, students, and other employees and/or individuals nearby.
Did you know that the air quality indoors is worse than most of us realize? Indoor concentrations of pollutants range from 2 to 100 times greater than outdoor concentrations.
There is a range of factors that impact air quality, including the applications or machine processes taking place, ventilation, airflow, humidity, and temperature. Dust from construction, mold, pesticides and cleaning supplies can also contribute to poor air quality.
Being exposed to poor air quality can result in health issues such as headaches, dizziness, and eyes, nose, and throat irritation. Long-term exposure presents higher risks of asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, nervous system effects, kidney damage, and cancer.
Improving your air quality helps lower missed days of work and improves concentration, productivity rates, and overall product quality! The right ventilation and building maintenance can prevent and fix air quality problems.
• Maintaining clean air
• Establishing proper ventilation
• Remaining current with facility maintenance
• Meeting regulations and guidelines
• Training and following equipment manuals
The General Duty Clause of the OSH Act requires employers to provide a safe workplace that does not have any known hazards that cause or are likely to cause death or serious injury.
