What does the Health and Safety Executive say about air quality in offices?

The requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act can be found in the following document. The Working Conditions Act sets a number of standards for the climate in a workplace. For example, air freshening equipment must always be ready for use. These devices must also be equipped with a control system. This system must be able to detect malfunctions in the equipment in good time. In addition to requirements, the Health and Safety Executive also issues recommendations. One such recommendation is to regularly replace the dust filters in the ventilation system. Air purifiers filter out the smallest materials. Such as ultrafine dust. This is not the case with air conditioners. These devices only filter coarse materials. Would you like more information on this subject? If so, you can consult the Health and Safety Portal.

What are the advantages of an air purifier in the office?

There are many advantages to using a professional air purifier in the office. Firstly, an air purifier removes unpleasant and musty odours in the workplace. Unpleasant odours have different causes. Think of certain production processes, people’s work clothes and the building itself. An air purifier in the office ensures that bad air is a thing of the past. An odour-free environment in the office stimulates employee productivity. As a result, more work is completed in a shorter time.

An air purifier in the office has even more advantages. Because an air purifier also removes bacteria, viruses (such as Covid-19) and fine dust in the office. As you probably know, fine dust has potential health risks. Examples are asthma attacks, coughing fits and tightness in the chest. (Read more about air purifiers for asthma). When breathing in ultrafine dust (particulate matter smaller than 0.01 millimetre), the risks are even greater. In some cases, this leads to less elastic blood vessels. And also an increase in blood pressure. The health of your employees is important. So prevent these risks with a professional air purifier in the office.
