When thinking about their cleaning, many businesses forget to consider the importance of clean air in their buildings. Yet managing and improving air quality in your workplace goes above and beyond just preventing absences: buildings with high levels of CO2 can see employee productivity reduced by up to 11%.
Creating the ultimate, balanced and healthy indoor environment
Our environment affects how we perform at work and air pollution is consistently ranked among our most worrying environmental dangers. With the average person spending just 8% of their time outside overall, employers have a duty to monitor, maintain and improve air ventilation in their buildings.
Unclean air in our buildings can contain substances that are extremely dangerous to human health. This includes Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), radon, CO2, benzene, formaldehyde and mould which are linked to cancers, respiratory illness and sadly, in some cases, death.
Study after study has shown that the amount of ventilation is a critical determinant of good health and a lack of it generates problems with cognitive performance. Ultimately, failure to provide adequate clean air in your workplace affects your teams’ ability to perform and increases absenteeism by increasing the risk of the spread of bad bacteria and viruses.
