The most common causes of poor industrial air quality are process waste and chemical waste.
The causes of workplace pollution are numerous. They include gas boilers, heaters, generators, cookers, paint, solvents, wastewater incinerators, laboratory fume cupboards and many other scenarios. When not checked and managed, these things can dramatically impact industrial indoor air quality, which can in turn have a negative impact on both employees and visitors.
What are the effects of industrial pollution? Workplace pollution has a significant impact on human health. This is why it is so important to address any issues you may have, as well as taking preventative measures too. We believe in testing industrial indoor air quality, and identifying problems before they become hazardous. The effects of industrial pollutants on your workforce may include:
The effects of industrial pollutants on human health cannot be separated from the impact it has on productivity. If the workforce is depleted by sickness, this represents a significant cost to the business. It may seem like an unnecessary factor to consider, however, when indoor air pollutants begin to affect your business, as well as your employees, you may re-evaluate its importance.
What are the effects of industrial air pollutants in different jobs and how high is your risk of suffering from industrial pollution? By knowing this information, it may help you to realise the urgency and necessity for air quality testing in specific environments. The following employment sectors are most likely to be impacted by industrial air pollutants:
When considering how to control industrial pollution, and minimise indoor air pollutants, policies should ideally be based on recovering and recycling hazardous materials. Measures to control industrial air pollution should be considered as an integral stage of the production process and policies to mitigate the impact of industrial pollution on human health should always be seen as an asset rather than a liability. This will inevitably ensure that minor problems do not become major hazards and therefore inconveniences.
