Offices and open spaces: a hotbed for viruses and bacteria

Offices and open spaces: a hotbed for viruses and bacteria

The risk of airborne transmission is highest in open spaces, meeting rooms or living spaces like the cafeteria or company canteen. Even if they comply with protective measures, your employees are likely to spray a cloud of contaminated micro-droplets into the air. This cloud can remain airborne for hours and infect other employees. Air conditioning is also suspected of being a huge vector for viruses and bacteria: the government has issued a ministerial note with a view to restricting the use of air conditioners in offices.

Indoor air pollution: your invisible enemy

Air pollution is 10 times greater in offices than outdoors:

  • Photocopiers and printers emit ozone and sometimes produce fine particles.
  • Certain construction, decoration or furniture materials emit Volatile Organic Compounds toxic to human health.
  • Dust mites can be found in soft furnishings such as curtains, rugs, carpets or fabric-covered armchairs.
  • The use of disinfecting and cleaning products generates irritating chemical particle emissions.

In addition, the architecture of some buildings makes fresh air supply impossible: windowless meeting rooms, windows that cannot be opened, huge open spaces, etc.

Indoor air pollution: your invisible enemy
How poor indoor air quality affects your business

How poor indoor air quality affects your business

Loss of concentration, headaches, irritation of the mucous membranes, allergies, dry eyes, etc.: indoor air pollution directly affects the productivity of your workforce. According to a survey published by the Harvard School of Public Health[1], better indoor air quality would help reduce short-term sick leave by 35%. Furthermore, with the COVID 19 crisis, your employees have an even greater need for reassurance about the quality of the air they breathe.
