What You Should Know:
Indoor air quality is an issue that has captured a lot of attention over the last few years. As a nation we are doing more and more to control our environment in the workplace, our vehicles, and our home. Indeed, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that many individuals spend over 90 percent of their time in conditioned environments. Although controlled spaces protect us from the extremes of weather and temperature they can also serve to trap pollutants around us
The emphasis of IAQ in the workplace is prompted by the fact that a large number of people are gathered in a single location, which makes it easier to document the common complaints and symptoms. However, by its very nature of being a workplace, such locations are gathering places for the fittest members of our society (with the exceptions of schools, nursing homes, and hospitals which serve as workplaces for the staff but have contact with a broad spectrum of our population). It is the home where groups that can be more easily and severely impacted by indoor air quality spend most of their time. It is at home where we find important subgroups of our population that are more susceptible to illnesses exacerbated by indoor air quality problems, including infants, children, the elderly, and individuals recovering from significant injuries or illnesses.
