Poor Indoor Air Quality Is Detrimental to Productivity
A recent survey entitled, “Air Quality and Wellbeing at Work” had over 1,000 UK office workers as respondents. The study had a survey component that aimed to discover whether indoor air quality had an impact on workers’ productivity. In addition to the survey results, the researchers also monitored factors like the time of the day when windows are closed.
The study had the following key findings:
●Eighty percent of respondents thought that poor indoor air quality had a bad effect on their health.
●The respondents noted a decline in productivity when the windows were closed (the researchers noted that this daily practice also increased the CO2 levels in their offices)
●Workers manifested symptoms of sick building syndrome (e.g., headaches, scratchy throats and irritated eyes) when the CO2 levels in their offices reached 1,664ppm (the healthy range is at 500-1,000ppm).
The detrimental effects of poor indoor air quality can be immediately addressed by opening windows and allowing fresh air to circulate inside the premises. There are, however, solutions that can offer long-term benefits.
