Air quality can have a direct impact on workers’ health and ability to perform their duties effectively. General indoor air quality and comfort parameters such as temperature and humidity ensure the work environment is suitable for people performing their daily tasks. Air quality can be impacted by the presence of hazardous airborne contaminants generated by the storage, handling and usage of chemicals in the workplace.
Poor indoor air quality can result in higher absenteeism, occupational illnesses and general discomfort. Maintaining a healthy and comfortable working environment can not only keep workers healthy, but also help to increase productivity.
