Indoor Air Quality & Air Monitoring

HSE Australia can conduct workplace indoor air quality testing and air monitoring and provide recommendations to ensure improved indoor air quality.

Recent history has shown an increased awareness of indoor air quality and the need to conduct regular investigation, monitoring and reporting. Poor indoor air quality or “sick building syndrome” are terms often used by building occupants where the health effects seem to reduce once they leave work.  Headaches, skin irritation, nausea and sore eyes are all possible symptoms.

Air Quality Monitoring

Understanding the indoor air quality is imperative to the ongoing commitment to compliance and the health and wellbeing of the employees and visitors to your workplace.

Many sources of indoor pollutants have been implicated, such as

  • ozone
  • formaldehyde
  • airborne dust
  • and carbon dioxide

Other environmental factors include the temperature, ventilation and relative humidity of the working environment.

Significant penalties exist for organisations that fail to comply with industry regulations to provide a safe work environment for their employees.

Air quality issues must be resolved quickly to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all staff. While indoor air quality in the office environment may seem a minor issue, it can potentially pose health risks to your employees in either the short term or over a significant period.
