Most companies are aware that outdoor environmental pollution can affect the health of its employees. However, many do not realize that indoor environmental contamination can also have a significant effect. Studies from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have indicated that indoor environmental pollutant concentrations can be significantly greater than concentrations observed outdoors. Comparative risk studies performed by the EPA and the Science Advisory Board have consistently ranked indoor environmental pollution among the top 5 environmental health risks.
Over the past several decades, exposure to indoor environmental pollutants has increased due to various factors: biological pollutants (bacteria, infectious diseases, insects, etc.); volatile organic compounds (VOCs); the construction of more tightly sealed buildings causing higher humidity which leads to mold formation; insufficient ventilation rates; synthetic building materials; and the use of chemically formulated personal care products, housekeeping supplies, and pesticides.
