Air seems to be an abstract element and yet it is vital for the survival of all living organisms. In fact, studies have shown that indoor air quality can have impact on not only the people’s health, but also the productivity during work. A good indoor air quality can keep building-related condition such as the Sick Building Syndrome at bay.
Even when the water flowing from tap or dispenser looks clear, there might be various pollutants present in a quantity exceeding the permissible level as a result of contamination and lack of maintenance for water filter and piping system. Regular inspection ensure a clean continuous source of water for everyone.
Microbes such as bacteria and fungi are invisible to naked eyes and yet the impact of these tiny organisms on people’s health can be adverse. As it is unavoidable to have microbes on the furniture surface or in the air, having the quantity and species of microbes in check can prevent negative health effects of microbes on people.
People are always exposed under various elements present in the surrounding through respiration, ingestion or skin contact especially in an enclosed environment. The level of chemicals or dusts in the environment should be monitor from time to time to ensure a safe and healthy condition which is beneficial for well-being of the people
New or old, the condition of building can directly affect our well-being as we spend 90% of our time inside the building. From ceiling to flooring, each aspect can be inspected for commissioning, monitoring and investigating purposes to ensure an optimum building performance which can lead to a comfortable and productive working environment.
Exposing to a substantial amount of noise for a long period of time for day to day basis can cause stress and discomfort. Machinery, traffic, railway track and airport are sources of noise which are unavoidable. However, through assessment, preventive measures can be planned out in order to reduce the noise exposure to an acceptable level for the sake of people.
Light is a form of energy that gives us the sense of vision that a good lighting setting is important for people’s visual comfort throughout the day especially in a working condition where facing light-emitting devices such as computer is needed. Whether it is natural or artificial lighting, an assessment can be done so that the optimum lighting is designed of the optimum productivity.
By investigating the background level of chemicals might not be sufficient to determine the risk posed by these chemicals towards the health of people who are frequently exposed. Each chemical will have different health effects on people at different dosage and different exposure path, thus a thorough assessment is advisable.
Out of a few preventive measures used to reduce pollutant exposure at work, ventilation is the most crucial method in maintaining the safe and healthy concentration of pollutants at workplace. A regular testing on the local exhaust ventilation system can ensure good ventilation at workplace to lower the risk of chronic chemical exposure .
Monitoring the stack emission of a factory does not only ensure that the emission is compliant to governmental regulation, but can also examine the functionality of mitigation device installed to remove the pollutants in the emission so that the air pollutants released into the ambient air does not affect the environment.
