Air Quality

Great workplaces and institutions, such as factories, office buildings and hospitals do not only rely on great services and business partnerships to thrive. They also rely on providing access to quality air to their visitors, employees and staff. The first step to ensure that everything runs smoothly in any workplace is maintaining the health of the people working there in excellent condition.

Why is air quality important?

A dedicated and knowledgeable facility manager or building owner is expected to carry out risk assessments and condition surveys regularly. The focus on quality air is in line with the building managers responsibility to comply with the Workplace, Health, Safety and Welfare Regulations Approved Code of Practice 1992, our competency and expertise can help to achieve compliance.

Hospitals and HTM-03-01

Health technical memoranda (HTM) 03-01 provides guidance on the design and management of heating and specialised ventilation in health sector buildings. The guidance calls for testing, cleaning and maintenance of ventilation systems to provide clean air in hospital wards and operating theatres to prevent the spread of disease and enhance the sterility of the internal environment.

How can we ensure the air quality is right?

Mechanical ventilation should be cleaned, maintained, and tested to avoid serious health problems. We at System Hygienics are able to take the steps to achieve constant good air quality and avoid Sick Building Syndrome.

What is Sick Building Syndrome?

An inadequately ventilated building gives birth to a collection of symptoms like aches and pains, headaches, fatigue, nausea, and poor concentration for its inhabitants. This is known as Sick Building Syndrome. According to the World Health Organization, up to 30% of new or refurbished offices may be connected to SBS. According to a report, workers are 50% less effective where ventilation is poor.

How do we stop this?

We at System Hygienics conduct a high-level of indoor air quality testing and offer a reliable, comprehensive report. Inclusive of Airborne Microbiological and Surface Microbiological Sample testing. This, however, isn't done in-house. All of our tests are sent off to an independent laboratory, where calibrated testing equipment is used, adding another solid layer of trust in our 100% accurate assessments.
