Surveys of employee sentiment have consistently found that employees want their organizations to prioritize their health and wellness in order for them to feel comfortable going back to the office. Given the nature of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, many individuals are particularly concerned about the air quality of public spaces.
The concerns are not unfounded; the EPA has found that indoor air can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air.
The negative effects of poor indoor air quality have been widely documented. The EPA lists the following health effects that poor indoor air quality can have on humans:
- Irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat.
- Headaches, dizziness, and fatigue.
- Respiratory diseases, heart disease, and cancer.”
