(), sets standards for indoor air quality in existing buildings occupied by public employees during their regular working Indoor Air Quality Standard is one of the only state indoor air quality standards in the U.S.

    The World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe has recently published a technical report: Review of evidence on health aspects of air pollution – REVIHAAP Project. This document presents answers to 24 questions relevant to air quality policy as well as specific topics on health aspects of individual air contaminants. Indoor air quality, which is a function of outdoor and indoor air pollutants, thermal comfort, and sensory loads (odors, “freshness”), can affect the health of children and adults and may affect student learning and teacher productivity.. Pollutants are generated from many sources. Outdoor pollutants include ozone, which has been associated with absenteeism among students.

Indoor air quality Summary Background Characteristics of solid fuel smoke Indoor air pollutant levels in households using solid fuel: concentrations and exposures Health eff ects associated with exposure to solid fuel smoke Comparability of health impacts from indoor and outdoor air pollution Improving air quality is, therefore, among the measures with the greatest potential impact on health equity. Large health benefits would occur for lower income groups, as well as children and the elderly, who bear the brunt of exposure to ambient air pollution or are most susceptible.

HEALTH IN BUILDINGS: INDOOR AIR QUALITY. According to studies by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans spend an average of 90 percent of their time in an indoor environment in which low air circulation can concentrate pollutants to two to five times higher than in outdoor air ().Chemicals that define indoor air quality can also affect health.

Get this from a library. Health aspects related to indoor air quality: report on a WHO working group, Bilthoven, April [World Health Organization. Working Group on Health Aspects Related to Indoor Air Quality.;]. No direct link to indoor air quality has been found, but most researchers recognise that a link exists (Bråbäck et al., ).

To emphasise the importance of healthy indoor air, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has adopted a set of declarations on “The right to healthy indoor air” (WHO, ).

How Indoor Air Quality Affects Health. Poor indoor air quality can contribute to symptoms ranging from eye, nose, and throat irritation to chronic conditions. Pollution sources such as wood smoke, natural gas combustion, or cigarette smoking that release gases or particles into the air can contribute to indoor air quality problems in homes.

Perceived air quality. Perceived IAQ is an umbrella of reported descriptors like temperature, draft, odor/smell, stuffy air, and dry and wet (humid) air, and where “dry air” is a common and among the most abundant, e.g.

Bluyssen et al. ().The perception of “dry air” can be associated with mucous membrane irritation of the eyes (e.g. dry eyes) and upper airways in presence of Cited by: Indoor Air Quality. Indoor air quality is defined by the depiction of concentrations of pollutants and thermal conditions that may negatively affect the health, comfort, and performance of a building’s occupants.

From: Handbook of Green Building Design and Construction (Second Edition), Related terms: Energy Engineering; Energy Efficiency. Interest in indoor air quality (IAQ) is growing at public, political and scientific levels.

Complaints about poor IAQ, associated with acute symptoms such as mucous irritation, headaches and bad odor occur frequently, particularly in the office environment, where typical patterns of symptoms often occur, leading to the coining of the term `Sick Building Syndrome'.

A chapter in the Mechanical Systems Handbook for Health Care Facilities provides basic information regarding several key indoor air quality issues for the health care engineer. Several common mechanical systems concepts (such as building pressurization, moisture, filtration, and local exhaust) are reviewed from an IAQ perspective.

The quality of the environment within buildings is a topic of major importance for public health. An international journal with multidisciplinary content, Indoor Air publishes papers reflecting the broad categories of interest in this field.

Air Quality, Atmosphere, and Health is a multidisciplinary journal which, by its very name, illustrates the broad range of work it publishes and which focuses on atmospheric consequences of human activities and their implications for human and ecological health.

Indoor Air Quality: The Trouble With Carpeting. Carpets keep a home warm and cozy, but they can also harbor allergens, dust, bacteria, and other pollutants that can affect indoor air quality.

Indoor environmental quality (IEQ) refers to the quality of a building’s environment in relation to the health and wellbeing of those who occupy space within it. IEQ is determined by many factors, including lighting, air quality, and damp conditions.

Workers are often concerned that they have symptoms or health conditions from exposures to. Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the air quality within and around buildings and is known to affect the health, comfort and well-being of building occupants. Poor indoor air quality has been linked to sick building syndrome, reduced productivity and impaired learning in schools.

IAQ can be affected by gases (including carbon monoxide, radon, volatile organic compounds), particulates.

Public Health Service and the EPA. The indoor air quality with which this Report is concerned is that of the " nonoccupational indoor environment" including public buildings and public transport.

Apart from three people from the U.S.A. all members of the Working Group were European and from countries which suffer cold winters, and the problems considered and the approach adopted reflect this geographical bias. Indoor air quality is influenced by concentrations of outdoor air pollutants, indoor sources of pollution, characteristics of the building and the habits of the residents.

Indoor air pollution may arise from the use of open fires, unsafe fuels or combustion of. Indoor Air Quality on Passenger Ships. A.D. Webster, G.L.

Reynolds The editor of this volume invited a wide range of experts to provide an in-depth treatment of virtually all aspects of aircraft cabin air quality. The topics are covered at a level comprehensible to all who fly as well as being of sufficient depth to be informative to.

• Performance: high-quality indoor air can improve mental performance and general well-being. • Other: fresh air creates a link to the outdoor environment, and fresh air through windows is a valued aspect of ventilation. There are generally three ways of achieving good.The intention of the book is to bring together a collection of contributions from specialists in the specific disciplines of indoor air quality, covering all points of view from various angles, from building design and building sciences, to health effects and medical diagnosis, toxicology of indoor air pollutants, and air sampling and analysis.
