Did you know that the quality of air that individuals breathe at work can affect their health, comfort and productivity? The Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers (OHCOW) has collaborated with the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) to develop a mobile app to help individuals find solutions to indoor air quality problems in their workplace.
The app, AirAssess – Improve Indoor Air Quality at Work, provides users with a questionnaire that answers simple questions about their current work conditions such as workplace stress levels, allergies, and environment factors. The answers to these questions provide key information to help uncover issues which may be related to the air quality in the workplace. Once the questionnaire is answered, the app will look for links and provide users with ideas to help their workplace take action on the possible air quality issues.
The free app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store, BlackBerry World, and Google Play, as well as from both the OHCOW and CCOHS websites.
