Indoor air quality : OHS information for workers and employers

Description

Indoor air quality, or IAQ, is an important component of a healthy and comfortable workplace. IAQ considers the indoor environment, including the makeup of the air and comfort factors such as temperature and relative humidity. IAQ issues tend to be complex and should be properly assessed to identify problems and their solutions. This brochure discusses some effects a poorly-maintained IAQ can have on the body, and provides a general guide to maintaining all the components that lead to good indoor air quality.
