The term indoor air quality (IAQ) is generally used to refer to the quality of the air in office environments. Complaints about IAQ have increased with energy conservation measures that limit the influx of outside air, and with the widespread use of synthetic materials and office equipment that give off noxious fumes. IAQ problems can cause symptoms such as headaches, nausea, fatigue, itching or burning eyes, and skin or throat irritation.
This new guide helps owners, managers, operators, building occupants, labour unions, engineers, environmental consultants, and suppliers maintain good indoor air quality, prevent indoor air quality problems, and correct problems that may arise. It also provides information on indoor air quality requirements in the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation.
