Why Air Quality & Ventilation is Important?
Availability of clean and fresh air promotes employee health. Office design should be made to promote employee adequate ventilation and access to fresh air and this, in no small measure, improves workplace productivity.
Poor ventilation and elevated levels of carbon dioxide and air irritants impede on one's attention span and ability to focus. In a double-blind study by researchers at the Center for Health and Global Environment at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, SUNY Upstate Medical University, and Syracuse University, it was found that poor quality of air in the workplace was associated with a decline in employee productivity.
