Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)
At EHS Assess, we understand that indoor environments are highly complex and building occupants may be exposed to a variety of contaminants. With most of us spending up to 90% or more of our time indoors at work or at home, indoor environmental quality (IEQ) influences our mood, health and performance. A number of physical, chemical, biological and radiological stressors exist in the indoor environment whether your place of work or home.
These can include:
- Relative Humidity
- Carbon dioxide (CO2)
- Carbon monoxide (CO)
- Dust (Particulate Matter) PM10, PM2.5
- Fibres – asbestos, synthetic mineral fibres (SMF)
- Environmental tobacco smoke, ultrafine particulate nicotine and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH)
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
- Microbial - yeast, mould and bacteria
- Sewage - odours or contamination
- Exhaust fumes – diesel
- Lighting levels
- Noise levels
- Extremely low frequency electromagnetic radiation
- Potable drinking water
EHS Assess work with our clients to develop and deliver the following:
- Proactive Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Management Programs - BEFORE a problem occurs.
- Reactive or investigative Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Assessment - AFTER or DURING a problem has been reported.
