Indoor climate survey as part of the process of solving workplace indoor air issues
Multidisciplinary co-operation and an approach that takes into account various perspectives is key in solving indoor air issues.
The experiences of the premises’ users can be surveyed at the group level as part of the investigation of indoor air issues, if necessary. However, the survey cannot be used to assess if there is a problem with the building or its systems, but rather the building must be inspected separately.
The survey can provide information on the symptoms and harm associated with the indoor environment and factors involved with solving the indoor air problem.
Who is the indoor climate survey suitable for?
Our indoor climate survey service can be used in the evaluation of premises such as offices, schools, day care centres and healthcare facilities, and other similar workplaces. The survey is intended for workplaces with at least 20 persons for whom the premises are their primary place of work (at least half of their working time is spent there).
The survey is best used as part of an overall indoor air investigation process, and its results should be examined in connection with investigations and observations carried out at the workplace in question. The figure below demonstrates the point in the process when you should consider commissioning an indoor climate survey.

We charge EUR 70 for every package of 20 paper forms, or part thereof, for the entry of data provided to use in this manner.
|Comparison with a previous indoor climate survey
If an indoor climate survey has previously been conducted on the location by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health with the same group breakdown, and the current survey is a follow-up, we can provide a comparison of the results by separate agreement.
We charge EUR 200 per statement for comparison of the results.
As a general rule, we recommend that your own occupational health care participates in the feedback meeting in order to provide answers to any possible questions raised during the meeting. If you want a specialist physician from the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health to participate in presenting the results of the survey and the feedback meeting at the workplace, this must be agreed separately with the specialist physician who signed the statement.
This and any other separately agreed work by occupational medicine specialists is charged according to the work performed.
