Indoor Air Quality Testing in Adelaide & Australia
Recent history has shown an increased awareness of indoor air quality and the need to provide investigation, monitoring and reporting services on a regular basis.
Poor indoor air quality or “sick building syndrome” are terms often used by building occupants where the health affects seem to reduce once they leave work. Headaches, skin irritation, nausea and siore eyes are all possible symptoms.
Many sources of indoor pollutants have been implicated such as tobacco smoke, ozone, formaldehyde, airborne dust and carbon dioxide to name a few. Other environmental factors include the temperature, ventilation and relative humidity of the working environment.
Significant penalties exist for organisations that fail to comply with industry regulations.
It is vital that air quality issues are resolved quickly to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all staff. While indoor air quality in the office environment may seem a minor issue, it can potentially pose health risks to your employees in either the short term or over a significant period.
Understanding the indoor air quality is imperative to the ongoing commitment to compliance and the health and wellbeing of the employees and visitors to your workplace.
