Maintaining Fresh Air in the Office to Prevent Illness

Blog #2 on Maintaining Fresh Air in the workplace.

Part of making sure your office is safe and productive is having quality air indoors. Do you think the air within your office is clean and fresh? Some business owners may think their building is free of air pollution, but sometimes even the tiniest particles can cause the biggest damages. You don’t want to face claims on your insurance due to not having clean air.            

There are many benefits of fresh air, and having it in your office is a must. What can you do to improve the indoor air in your commercial space? The following are some tips you can take into account:

• Do not block air vents
• Comply with the office and building smoking policies
• Water and maintain office plants properly
• Dispose of garbage properly
• Avoid bringing products into the building that could release harmful or bothersome odors
• Notify your building or facility manager immediately if you suspect an indoor air quality problem
• Integrate indoor air quality concerns into your purchasing decisions
• Ensure the use of appropriate pest control practices
• Work with building management before you remodel or renovate
• Develop a preventive indoor air quality management program

At Bassler & Co., we hope you take these suggestions seriously in order to improve the air quality in your office. Failing to maintain clean air could result in a job related illness for one of your team members. If this happens, a workers compensation claim could result. You don’t want your employees to be in danger. Therefore, doing all you can to protect them properly in getting rid of air pollution can help them stay healthy and help you decrease premiums!
