The Problem

Poor Indoor Air Quality in
Schools and Colleges

In a recent study, it was stated that in the US, on any given school day, one in five of the entire population occupies a school or college building.  In the UK, this would equate to some 12 million people.

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is measured using a number of criteria:  Temperature; Humidity; Particulate and Gaseous Contaminants.  By providing improved indoor air quality, it is possible to:

• Reduce absenteeism for both students and staff
• Reduce building deterioration
• Improve energy efficiency & reduce costs
• Reduce external air ventilation requirements
• Reduce conflict caused by poor indoor air quality whilst improving performance
• Comply with Health & Safety Regulations (COSHH)

Poor IAQ has been shown to result in increased incidences of illness and absenteeism, reduced levels of concentration, irritability, complaints about building odour and stuffiness and, most disconcertingly, health problems. 

These are known to include:

• Coughing
• Diarrhoea
• Eye, nose and throat irritation
• Fatigue
• General respiratory problems
• Headaches
• Dizziness
• Runny nose
• Skin irritations

There are a number of areas within schools and colleges where indoor quality, if not filtered, can cause any one, or a combination, of the effects described above. 

These include:

• Beauty
• Hairdressing
• Nails
• Print Rooms
• Offices
• Woodworking
• Technology areas
• Laboratories
• Photographic darkrooms
• Photocopier rooms

Any other areas with poor ventilation and a higher level of airborne particles, smells or volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
