Indoor Air Quality Video
From Videos A-E
'Indoor Air Quality' Videotape Program shows employees the potentially harmful effects of poor air quality, and will help them prevent, identify and correct air quality problems. It is all around us, and we breathe it every day to stay alive. But how 'clean' is the air that we breathe? While we know that it contains oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen, there may be other substances in the air around us that we do not know about... such as dust, mites, spores, bacteria and hazardous fumes.
The Videotape includes information on the sources of air contamination, adhesive/solvent fumes and vehicle exhaust, how a building's occupants affect indoor air quality, the importance of proper housekeeping, smoking and secondhand smoke, the use of humidifiers and de-humidifiers, pollutant pathways, including air ducts and crawlspaces, heating and air conditioning systems, the signs and symptoms of poor air quality, and more. The Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log.
Indoor Air Quality Video and DVD Excerpt: Air, it's all around you. You breath it everyday to stay alive. There is nothing like a breath of fresh air. But how fresh is the air you breath? Air contains some things you may know about, such as oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen. But there also may be things in the air you might not know about. Such as dust, mites, spores, hazardous fumes and bacteria, all of which can cause health problems. And bad air can be bad news to anyone who breaths it. The short term effects of exposure to polluted air can include irritation of the eyes, nose and throat. Bad air can also cause headaches, dizziness and fatigue. Long term exposure to air contaminants can lead to serious illness. Such as asthma and even emphysema. Air pollution isn't just an outdoor problem. Inside a building contaminated air causes major problems for the people who breathe it. In fact indoor air quality has been enough of a concern that the US environmental protection agency (the EPA) and the national institute of safety and health (NIOSH) have created an indoor air quality guide. The purpose of this guide is to make everyone aware of the potentially harmful effects of poor air quality.
