Indoor air pollution can be anywhere from two to five times more polluted than the worst outside air. This course will help your employees identify, prevent and correct air quality problems. Indoor air quality is enough of a concern that the EPA and NIOSH have created an Indoor Air Quality Guide. Topics covered: the sources of air contamination, adhesives, solvents and vehicle exhaust, how a building’s occupants affect indoor air quality, smoking and second-hand smoke, the use of humidifiers and dehumidifiers, pollutant pathways, including air ducts and crawlspaces, heating and air-conditioning systems, the symptoms and signs of poor air quality, and more.
