Human Resources Targets Mold & Other IAQ Concerns to Minimize Employee Risks
The environmental and building consulting experts at EC2 provide solutions for human resources professionals dealing with indoor air quality (IAQ) issues.
Professionals involved with human resources (HR) deal with a myriad of employee concerns and risk management issues. Their ability to identify, assess and prioritize risks is all part of the daily routine for many of these dedicated professionals.
One area that not all HR professionals are familiar with is how to deal with employee concerns about indoor air quality. IAQ concerns can range from an employee not liking the smell of a co-workers cologne or perfume to concerns about mold and infectious diseases such as the H1N1 virus or MRSA bacteria.
Virtually any commercial or institutional facility is subject to having IAQ complaints or problems at some point in time. Knowing how to handle employees’ IAQ complaints can mean the difference between a happy and productive workforce and people calling in sick or threatening lawsuits.
Fortunately there are ways for HR professionals to minimize IAQ risks and keep the workforce healthy and productive. In Northern Illinois and the greater Chicago area the building and environmental consulting experts at EC2 are regularly called upon to solve IAQ complaints and have to date successfully resolved over 5,000 IAQ projects.
“The number one thing that human resources professionals need to do when faced with an employee complaint about indoor air quality is to listen and show the employee that you take their concern seriously,” stated Ed Chambers, the President of EC2. “As a professional IAQ consulting company we are regularly called upon by HR departments to investigate air quality concerns ranging from mold and bacteria to unknown chemical irritants. Effective public, media, and workplace communication has been, and still is, key to EC2’s success. This allows us to resolve environmental problems quickly, without major disruption in activities or loss to the customer.”
