Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is crucial for the health and safety of employees. Poor air quality inside industrial facilities can cause respiratory problems, headaches, and other severe health issues. Therefore, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has declared October as the Indoor Air Quality Awareness Month, aiming to spread awareness about IAQ regulation compliance and the adoption of best practices for IAQ management. This month is the perfect occasion for plant managers to evaluate their facilities’ IAQ and take necessary actions to improve overall air quality.

In conclusion, the significance of IAQ in industrial facilities extends beyond compliance with EPA regulations. It impacts the health and productivity of the workforce, ultimately affecting the bottom line of the company. As we observe Indoor Air Quality Awareness Month, it’s a prime opportunity for plant managers to assess their facility’s IAQ conditions and adopt effective strategies to improve.
