Why Is Indoor Air Quality Testing Important?

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (1999) states that employers have a ‘duty of care’ in ensuring that their employees work in a comfortable environment.

Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) is a condition recognised by the World Health Organisation and the HSE. The causes of unsatisfactory air quality can be wide ranging but the effects are noticeable and can be detrimental to the comfort of employees in the workplace. These symptoms do not apparently cause permanent damage but can have significant impact on those affected and place large costs on the organisation.

The HSE recommends that expert consultants are employed to determine and verify the presence of indoor pollutants and other contributory factors of Sick Building Syndrome.
