As we occupy populated workplaces and have entered into the chillier months of cold and flu season – providing a safe and hygienic space for your employees has never been more important.
There are many pollutants that may negatively impact the air quality indoors, even in places we perceive as typically ‘clean’ like an office environment.
As we can’t physically see poor air quality, its importance is often unknown or not regulated.
Safe Work Australia states that workplaces should consider ventilation in risk assessments, monitor indoor air quality and regularly review the effectiveness of all control measures to eliminate or minimise health and safety risks.
It can often become a difficult task to employ these safe practices for quality air control, with many environments offering minimal or even no natural ventilation options.
However, technology has graced us with the innovation of air purifiers.
Those which are correctly fitted with the appropriate high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters can lower the concentration of airborne particles (including those containing viruses).
Air purifiers can be useful additions in areas with poor ventilation when reducing the transmission of airborne infections.
Dr Claire Bird, an Australian indoor air quality and microbiology scientist and Executive Secretary of The Integrated Bioscience and Built Environment Consortium (IBEC), an organisation that provides real-world solutions that mitigate risk and liability and educate people about pathogen exposure, has offered a deeper insight to the issues.
Dr Bird stated the first step towards improving indoor air quality is to identify your concern so you can employ the best approach. Here are her top tips to help combat the four most common indoor air quality issues.
Consider the four Ds:
Density – the number of people in an indoor space
Duration – potential time in a space with another person
Distance – from an infected person
Dilution – of the pathogen of concern
Dilution methods in a building include increasing the ventilation in an environment, increasing the effectiveness of HVAC filtration systems, or adding an in-room filtration device such as a HEPA air filter.
These devices along with wearing appropriately fitting face masks are good ways to reduce the transmission of airborne infection.
If mould is your top worry, make sure your air conditioning systems are not only serviced but are inspected regularly for mould due to the typically humid environments they reside in.
If you have a water leak, the wet materials must be dried within 48 hours by an accredited restorer to prevent mould.
When battling mould, despite what you may have heard about bleach not being effective against the problem, it may come as a surprise to learn that bleach is more potent to mould than vinegar.
The reason mould often returns is due to moisture in the environment, not because bleach has failed to kill it.
However, you must understand the dangers of using bleach and be educated upon deciding whether it’s the right solution for your problem.
Prioritise protective gear
If you have endured a flood or are undertaking construction work to improve your workplace, be mindful of the environmental effects that surround repairing damaged building materials.
Asbestos fibres are released when walls and floors are removed, as well as crystalline silica whilst tile cutting or concrete grinding. If you are not wearing a correctly fitted respiratory mask, inhaling these particles can lead to serious health effects and potentially be fatal.
Know your space and technology
Carbon dioxide sensors have a place in ensuring the space is not overcrowded, but should not be solely relied on to gauge the air quality of your environment nor to claim you have controlled COVID-19 or flu spread.
Trusting a carbon dioxide reading alone can be misleading.
Carbon dioxide sensors do not detect improvements made by wearing masks, nor consider the increased risks when congregating closely within a room, where density and distance always matter.
Carbon dioxide sensors will not help you identify mould which would highlight you to dampness, known to lead to significant health issues.
These sensors will not alert you to harmful gases from new furniture or cleaning products which negatively impact air quality.
Be sure to do your research on the risks in each physical space as well as the carbon dioxide sensor brand to be certain of its ability, and make sure you understand the limitations of what the sensor tells you.
Product Overview of TruSens Z-3000 Air Purifier
Contemporary air purifier combines DuPont filtration with a unique approach to delivering cleaner air.
Sensing the air around you, the TruSens Z-3000 automatically adjusts to the conditions of your air and is engineered to distribute purified air more effectively. SensorPod air quality readings are displayed and TruSens adapts accordingly.
A colour-coded illuminated ring provides additional information by visually communicating good, moderate, or poor air quality.
Breathe cleaner air with a reimagined air purifier.
Experience the difference with remote sensing technology, two airflow streams and DuPont filtration.
Placed away from the purifier, the SensorPod monitors air quality across the room to optimize clean air delivery throughout your space.
Automatically adjusts the fan speed in response to the SensorPod air quality readings.
TruSens keeps you informed with a colour-coded illuminated ring and numerical value that communicates good, moderate, or poor air quality.
PureDirect technology uses two airflow streams to distribute air more comfortably, delivering purified air more effectively.
The 360-degree DuPont HEPA filter captures pollutants and VOC gases/odours from all directions whilst the UV light kills germs and bacteria that can get trapped in the filter.
The contemporary design with sleek touch-button controls and integrated handle blend seamlessly into your environment.
Ideal for rooms up to 70sq m.
