Improving Your Worksite
Indoor environmental quality is one of FOH's many areas of expertise. Our Environmental Health and Safety Services (EHSS) supports agencies in identifying and resolving environmental health issues by addressing them early through assessments and offering abatement programs, ongoing monitoring, and specialized training for employees and managers.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) states that the quality of air inside office buildings and other workplaces is not only important for employee comfort, but also for their health. FOH's team of environmental health professionals can be part of your efforts to protect worker health and alleviate symptoms that are attributed to poor indoor environmental quality such as headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating, irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs, and in some cases, even asthma.
