The quality of the air in the offices is a key factor for the workers’ health and well-being.
Several sources contribute to a bad quality of the air in office buildings, among others are; badly conceived or badly maintained ventilation systems, synthetic construction materials and furnishing, photocopiers and other electronic devices, occupants and their activities, cleaning products, presence of excessive moisture as well as over population.
A bad indoor air quality can affect the health and comfort of the occupants and generate an increased rate of absenteeism, decrease productivity and less pleasant attitude among workers.
Hence, it is in the interest of the employer and building manager to respond quickly and seriously to all complaints related to indoor environment and to establish its credibility while communicating openly with the occupants of the building.
The building managers should not underestimate the anxiety and the frustration of the occupants when they find out that no measures were taken to improve the situation and that important information were hidden from them.
