- Four elements - sources, the HVAC system, pollutant pathways, and occupants - are involved in the development of IAQ problems.
- Current technology allows easy and relatively inexpensive measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2 ) as an indicator to help ensure ventilation systems (for high density occupancy zones) are delivering the recommended minimum quantities of outside air to the building’s occupants.
- Hazardous chemicals and products are made and used in the greatest quantities in workplaces — where they first expose workers.
- Since a floor that is slip-resistant when wet will generally be slip resistant when dry, taking measurements of the condition of floors by benchmarking the wet Coefficient of Friction (COF) is an important starting point to raise safety levels.
- Data from many facilities show that a properly commissioned building with controls and equipment functioning properly can save 5%-15% in total building energy cost. With a little knowledge this can be done without compromising IAQ.
- OSHA guide to preventing mold, mold sources, and building-related illnesses.
