The importance of Indoor Air Quality in Manufacturing, Food Processing, Factories and Warehouses

Healthy air for OH&S and productivity

Manufacturing and food processing involves many people, products, substances and machines – all sources of poor indoor air quality. Indoor air quality has a direct effect on employee’s health and productivity, unseen dust and mist remains suspended in the air for long periods of time, migrates to HVAC systems and is reintroduced to employees.

Research in the USA has shown that spending just $40 per person a year on IAQ results in a $6,500 increase in employee output. Poor indoor air quality such as dust also affects equipment, on condensers can breed bacteria and mould, and on heating coils be fuel for burning odours.

Poor indoor air quality can lead to symptoms similar to colds, allergies, such as headaches, coughing, eye/skin irritation, fatigue, nausea and a more serious outcome of respiratory disease.

Contaminants are generated through the manufacturing/food processing activities, ‘process dust’ and can come from materials, chemicals and ingredients used in the production process.

ASHRAE provides standards to improve indoor air quality, including air cleaning and ventilation. IAQ ventilation provides solutions to test, clean, ventilate and maintain indoor air quality in your industrial environment.
