Is the Air at Your Work Making You Sick?

Apr 2, 2018

Almost everyone has joked at one time or another in their life that they must be allergic to their job or their work.  The reality is that it may actually be true.  The air in your work space or office could actually be making you sick. 

Do you, your employees,or co-workers ever experience any of the following?

  • Dry or irritated eyes, nose, throat, and skin
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Hypersensitivity and allergies
  • Sinus congestion
  • Coughing and sneezing
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea

What to do if the Air at Your Work is Making You Sick

If you think that you might be getting sick from the air at your work, Health Canada recommends that you keep a diary of when your symptoms come and go.  They also recommend that you speak to your supervisor or health and safety manager about how you are feeling.

When you consider that the average person spends over 2000 hours per year at work and over 30% of their average day inside the office or work space, you can see that having contaminated air will have a significant impact on how you feel overall.

Air Quality at Workplace Impacts Performance

Not only does air quality play a role in your health and how you feel, it has also proven to have an impact on the productivity of workers.  For example, one study by teams at both Harvard and Syracuse Universities showed that when workers were in a clean air environment, they performed 61% better on cognitive tests when compared to a standard office.  Further, when the ventilation within that clean air office space was doubled, the mental performance was increased by more than 100%.  All in, this shows that workplace indoor air quality is an important factor for employers to be mindful of.

Get Proof if the Air at Your Work is Contaminated

So how do you know if the air at your workplace is making you sick?  Or how do you know if the air at your office is contaminated?  The answer is to have an indoor air quality assessment done.  This indoor air quality assessment, conducted by Modern PURAIR®, utilizing a third-party analysis system.  The Modern PURAIR® Air Quality Technician will bring a portable air monitor to your office where it will track the air quality at multiple locations throughout your workspace, analyzing the air over three days for six different key markers as recommended by health Canada.  A third-party lab then analyzes the findings and provides a report with recommendations.
