Is Poor Indoor Air Quality Making You Sick?

As energy conservation awareness has increased over the past few years, indoor air quality has become an important occupational health and safety issue. Energy conservation measures have resulted in airtight building construction that can create indoor air quality problems and leave employers wondering if the poor air quality is making employees sick. When ventilation systems are set to minimize the amount of fresh air that enters and circulates within the building, carbon dioxide is not properly removed and the quality of the indoor air decreases. Humidity can also build-up, leading to mold and mildew problems.

Poor air quality affects hundreds of millions of people, with symptoms ranging from headache, fatigue, coughing, and sneezing to shortness of breath and dizziness and could be making you sick. Sick building syndrome (SBS) is the term used to describe cases in which building occupants experience adverse health effects that are apparently linked to the time they spend in the building. If people in your building start noticing symptoms after several hours at work and find their symptoms improve after they have been absent from the building for a weekend or vacation, your indoor air quality is probably to blame.
