Air pollution has spiked, how can GroupL Services help you


Air pollution has spiked, how can GroupL Services help you

In India, human health and safety problems caused by air pollution are becoming increasingly serious.

According to ICMR and PHFI study, air pollution led to over 2,750 cases of deaths or severe illnesses per lakh people in 2016. Leading causes of illness were non-communicable diseases like cardiovascular disease and respiratory infections.

Over the past month, North India has been covered by thick smog. There are several factors that contribute to the spike in outdoor air pollution at this time of the year.
                                                                                                                                                    
The severely high level of outdoor air pollution combines with indoor air pollution creating a modern work hazard that deserves attention. Employees spend an average of 8 hours a day at work. Poor quality of air affects workers, causing various symptoms including allergic reactions, physical and mental fatigue, headaches, eye and throat irritation. This in turn reduces productivity and increases absenteeism at work. A recent Lancet study has said that indoor air pollution caused 1.24 lakh premature deaths in India in 2015.  

Indoor air pollution is generated by poor ventilation. The use of office equipment and machines which emit pollutants like carbon monoxide that are harmful. Cleaning products using pesticides and harmful chemicals. Dust from construction. Mould and bacteria in office furnishings like blinds and carpets, ceiling panels etc.
