WE CAME across this blog this week and wanted to be sure to put it up here for those people who are still wondering: Indoor Air Quality? Huh, what’s that?
The blog is written by an American whose work is to promote green living in office spaces – pretty cool stuff. Anyway, you should check out the blog, GreenWorksGov if you’re interested in how you can make your office more “green”.
We’re linking the blog post about indoor air quality here, but if you want to know more about what the different American organisations have to say about Indoor Air Quality, we’re also reproducing the links here:
http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/indoorairquality/ US Dept. of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration. This is an up-to-date portal with access to basic information and links to other resources.
http://www.osha.gov/Publications/3430indoor-air-quality-sm.pdf DOL, OSHA publication, 2011. Excellent! Indoor Air Quality 101. If you only read one thing, read this.
http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/indoorenv/ The Centers for Disease Control writes about indoor air quality and health-related concerns.
http://www.epa.gov/iaq/largebldgs/ EPA’s page on indoor air quality and large buildings.
http://www.epa.gov/greenbuilding/ EPA’s page on green building—good basic info on what is meant by “green building”. Good links.
http://www.epa.gov/iaq/pubs/occupgd.html This is a useful guide for what building occupants should know and can do, but somewhat dated (1997).
Hope this helps!
