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.

The harmful effects of dust on the health and performance of office workers

It goes without saying that India has turned into a huge construction site. There are numerous road repairs works being carried out, construction of new underground metro, several residential and commercial projects being developed, expansion of roadways etc. The unavoidable consequence of these necessary development activities is - DUST! Unimaginable quantities of dust have been released into the air, which is settling in our homes and offices.  There are countless offices and work spaces in India that literally bath in dust causing health concerns to their employees.

Science confirms health concerns caused by dust

According to the findings of a study conducted in Oslo, Norway almost 20 years ago, it has been proved that office employees are very likely to experience symptoms directly associated with harmful dust exposure. Two groups of employees were tested, although only one was exposed to indoor polluted air. As expected, the group who worked in an office that was thoroughly cleaned and maintained didn’t experience any health issues. On the other side, the group forced to work in an office that lacked proper cleaning ended up with serious respiratory infections and health issues. The conclusion was inevitable, thorough professional office cleaning can significantly reduce the quantity of airborne dust that can harm your office employees.

The dust is harmful to both humans and machines

According to the findings of another study, the lifespan and proper functionality of computers were significantly reduced as a result of the dust exposure. The computer vents don’t have the capacity to operate if office cleaning fails to remove the dust. Before you know it, your computers, covered in dust will make you spend much more than expected and planned for in terms of constant repairs and servicing. What’s even worse, you will be forced to acquire new machines much earlier than planned. All of these problems and costs can be avoided if routine office cleaning is carried out thoroughly by professionals.
