According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) experts believe more people suffer from the effect of indoor air pollution than from outdoor air pollution.
It is estimated that IAQ problems cos US economy as much as $168 billion per year and there have been many high-profile indoor air quality litigation cases in recent years. Commercial clients are becoming increasingly aware of liability in the workplace and the need to have verified information as to workplace environment safety standards.
It is estimated Americans spend 90% of their time indoors either at home or in a workplace environment. Providing a safe workplace is not only a regulatory requirement it is also an effective way of improving performance and reducing absenteeism leading to increased profitability.
Reduced worker productivity, increased absenteeism, occupant/employee complaint and the increase for litigation may potentially be attributed to unsatisfactory indoor environmental conditions.
Indoor environments are where people spend most of their time. Studies have shown that people spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, with the majority in their own homes. For many people, the risks to health may be greater exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors. Most people do not know their homes can cause a threat or risk to their health, but over time, poor indoor environmental quality can play a significant role in deterioration of a resident’s health especially children and older residents. Independent testing has determined over 50% of all respiratory illness is caused by exposure in your home or work environment.
FACT: EPA stated that indoor environments may be anywhere from 2-5 times more polluted than that of the outdoor environment.
FACT: Many IEQ problems are preventable when a proactive approach is taken.
