While you might think that manufacturing facilities are the only type of workplaces with IAQ risks you should think again. Offices, restaurants, malls, homes, and all other spaces have their own unique concerns. Many hockey rinks even have specific ammonia monitoring with alarms unique to their use. Having the right monitoring in place is crucial to be able to identify risks and address them quickly. 

What workplace hazards impact indoor air quality?

Risk can come from the type of work being done in a space. This can be dust from manufacturing, chemicals from treatments of products, or CO2 from too many people in a space with too little ventilation.

  1. Temperature: most chemicals offgas at either room temperature or higher. High temperatures result in poor workplace performance and extreme temperature can result in heat stroke and other issues.
  2. Lack of air movement: if the air is stale and unmoving, the offgassing materials will linger and workplace performance can suffer. It will also mean that anything from a cough, or a sneeze will stay in the air for much longer.
  3. Removing or mitigating issues at the source: You can use furniture made from hardwood instead of particle board, and specify low-VOC paint for new constructions and renovations. You can also leave items to offgas or improve the exhaust systems in areas where you need to have higher offgasing materials or products.

If you are monitoring these factors, you will know when issues arise and you can take immediate action to keep your indoor space healthier, safer, and ultimately reduce offgassing of VOCs in your space.

How monitoring your indoor air quality creates safer workplaces

Take quick action to reduce workplace hazards

High levels of VOCs from offgassing can result in sick days, headaches, poor performance and chronic issues for yourself or your team at work. Certain types of offgassing need to be more quickly dealt with than others, however shopping smart is the most effective step. Look for  Greenguard (for furniture), Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) and SGS Group have certifications denoting goods that are low to no-emission.

Airsset will send alerts when workplace hazards are detected in all space types.

Monitor air ventilation to identify risks of quicker

If the air is stale and unmoving, offgassed chemicals will remain in the air. Do you know if your space has effective ventilation? What happens when a ventilation fan breaks or stops working? Sometimes the issue isn’t noticed or resolved for months, and that area can be a risk without someone knowing for a long time. Maybe it’s a printer room that should have an exhaust but didn’t.

Airsset monitors for chemicals, dust and a wide variety of itmes which, when found in high levels indicates there is something wrong and action needs to be taken. When there’s an issue, you’ll get an alert so you can take action immediately. Airsset can also connect to your control system for any Demand Control Ventilation needs.

Healthy air leads to better performance

Poor indoor air quality often results in headaches and other temporary effects that affect your day to day performance. In the worst instances it can close the job site or workplace.

Airsset has a cognitive function parameter and will send alerts when high levels of unhealthy indoor air is detected. Additionally, our monthly reports prepared by our team of experts can help you identify recurring problems and optimize your air quality system for a healthier, safer workplace. 

A healthier, safer workplace starts here

Airsset will help you not only monitor important air quality factors like volatile organic compounds (VOCs), but you’ll also better understand the data and get alerts when you need to take action. 

It starts with three easy steps
