Volatile Organic Compounds and New Construction Discussed in Video
The IAQ Video Network releases another educational production about important environmental, health & safety (EHS) issues.
Phoenix, AZ -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of their latest educational video. Their newest production discusses how building occupants can be exposed to elevated levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in newly constructed or recently renovated homes and buildings.
“These buildings frequently have a new smell that is often due to VOCs off-gassing from new building materials, finishes and furnishings,” said Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates and the IAQ Video Network. “While VOC levels will typically decrease over time, exposure can cause complaints over eye and respiratory tract irritation, headaches and dizziness. We hope this new video helps to shed some light on indoor VOC exposures.”
This educational video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that work to protect and enhance the public’s health and safety. Sponsors include EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Clark Seif Clark and Zimmetry Environmental to name just a few.
