Air Quality
Creating the most productive & healthiest workplace

Air Quality 

Recent studies suggest indoor air quality (IAQ) and productivity of employees are related factors. Healthy air quality directly contributes to the performance of staff. 

Better air quality translates to fewer pollutants in the air and more oxygen. Improved oxygen flow to the brain results in better cognitive performance, while symptoms of oxygen deprivation include a decline in cognition. Understanding the relationship between the two topics will help employers improve both air quality and the health and performance of their employees.

Created Saturday, 27 February 2021

Two striking facts perfectly illustrate why we need to place air quality at the top of the environmental and human health agenda. First, the quality of the air we breathe has a huge impact on our health and wellbeing; globally, air pollution is the leading environmental cause of shortened life, contributing to the equivalent of 5% of all deaths worldwide. Second, each of us inhales more than 25 million particles with every breath we take; the more contaminants we ingest, the greater the chance of sickness and ill-health.

Safe schools everyday

Created Tuesday, 2 February 2021

For a safe school operation, healthy and virus-free air in the classroom is needed to avoid infections and diseases. Viruses, such as COVID-19, can spread through the air in the form of aerosols. Depending on factors including ventilation rates and particulate levels, these viruses can remain airborne for several hours. Indoor environments can experience a higher concentration of aerosols (high viral load), which can increase the risk of infection.
