New Year’s Resolution – Superior IAQ for Workers in Puerto Rico
Zimmetry Environmental provides indoor air and environmental quality testing and consulting services to help ensure a healthy working environment.
Workers have a right to a safe environment.
With only a few days left before the start of 2016, many workers across Puerto Rico are hoping their employers make a special New Year’s resolution. Their wish is for a safe and healthy working environment.
Aside from time spent at home, most people with a job spend the majority of their time at work. This fact underscores the importance of the air quality and the overall environmental quality of the work environment. The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) states, “The quality of indoor air inside offices, schools, and other workplaces is important not only for workers’ comfort but also for their health. Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) has been tied to symptoms like headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating, and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and lungs. Also, some specific diseases have been linked to specific air contaminants or indoor environments, like asthma with damp indoor environments. In addition, some exposures, such as asbestos and radon, do not cause immediate symptoms but can lead to cancer after many years.”
Many factors can impact the indoor environment, from gases, particulates and microbial contaminants to issues associated with poor ventilation or high relative humidity to name just a few.
“Workers have a right to a safe environment,” said Harry Pena, President of Zimmetry Environmental. “The law directly requires employers to provide their employees with safe and healthful workplaces. In addition, a healthy indoor environment not only decreases the number of sick days and associated medical costs, it also makes employees more productive and less likely to leave a company.”
Employers in Puerto Rico and across the Caribbean who want to ensure their workers are exposed to a healthy indoor environment can turn to the experts at Zimmetry Environmental. Their professionals can diagnose the indoor environment for particulates, asbestos, lead dusts, volatile organic compounds, radon, combustion gases, mold, allergens, temperature, humidity and a wide range of other common problems. If an issue is discovered, they can provide options to employers for ways to resolve the situation.
