In this busy world, businesses can offer their employees a respite from the noise, traffic congestion and air pollution, creating the offices and workplaces of the future. Somewhere to think, collaborate and create. Somewhere that is calm, inspiring, healthy and productive.
The average fulltime employee spends as much as 1880 hours a year (over 21% of his/her time) in the office environment. It is therefore obvious that the indoor air quality at work has a major effect on the health and wellness of employees. In fact the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calls indoor air quality one of the top five environmental health risks of our time.
Improved indoor air quality can potentially boost productivity
Improving indoor air quality, therefore, can have an immediate, positive and tangible impact on sickness absenteeism and lead to a boost in productivity. A Californian study by William Fisk from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory demonstrated that the economic impact of increased productivity from improved IAQ, can improve office worker productivity by 0.5 to 5 percent, with estimated savings of $20 to $200 billion. Clearer air is beneficial to a healthy office environment. DESSO AirMaster® captures harmful fine dust from the indoor air.
