Whether you are a health and safety manager or a domestic client, it is hard to work out what to do if you are receiving complaints about the quality of the air within your building. We can help by carrying out an indoor air quality survey, and then advise and implement corrective actions.
Please feel free to contact us for more information or just some advice.
Why Is Air Quality Important?
■ Increased public awareness of issues which can affect the workplace environment, such as Sick Building Syndrome, which have been linked to poor indoor air quality.
■ Investigations into indoor pollution.
■ Changes in the way we work, and where we work, which have given rise to concern over indoor air quality, particularly in call centres.
What Are Your Responsibilities?
Under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Occupiers Liability Act 1984, an employer has a duty of care to ensure that a safe and healthy environment is provided. The Approved Code of Practice accompanying the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations, states that indoor air quality should be at least equal to, but ideally better than, the air outside your building. HSE document EH40 contains a list of maximum exposure limits and occupational exposure standards for specific gases as required by the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations.
