Is the indoor air poor at your workplace?

Indoor air problems are a common problem in buildings. They may be caused by, for instance, inadequate ventilation, dust and fibres, as well as chemical emissions from construction materials. There may also be moisture and microbe damage, which has been shown to have a temporal relationship to the development and worsening of asthma as well as respiratory tract symptoms.

Inconvenience caused by the indoor environment should be dealt with promptly, and the methods of action should be agreed in advance at the workplace.
