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.

Home Security Tips

Considering the amount of time we spend in our homes, there is no doubt to why we worry about the safety and security of our homes. Here are some simple security precautions to keep in mind to prevent burglars from entering your home. 
  • Lock up your home, even if you go out only for a short time. Many burglars just walk in through an unlocked door or window.
  • Deadbolt locks are always better than spring-latch locks. To help burglar-proof your home, install 1-inch throw deadbolt locks on all exterior doors.
  • Ensure minimal space between door and frame. This will make it difficult for the burglar to try and break open the door. Also, ensure your main door hinges are on the inside.
  • Change all the locks and tumblers when you move into a new house or lose your keys.
  • Consider investing in a fire-proof and water-proof safe if you have a higher end need for safety and valuable assets to protect.
  • Your house should appear occupied at all times. Use timers to switch lights and radios on and off when you're not at home.
  • Consider installing grills on your windows, especially if you live on the ground or first floor. Or if you have a tree directly outside one of your windows.
  • It is better to keep your curtains drawn if you live on the ground or first floor of a road facing house. That way burglars can’t look in to see if there is anything worthwhile for them to rob.
