OSHA Document Addresses IAQ in Commercial and
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
recently released “Indoor Air Quality in Commercial and
Institutional Buildings”. The document provides
practical guidance for IAQ issues meant to assist
building owners and operators. In addition, it offers
direction for HVAC engineers, industrial hygienists and
IAQ professionals to improve the indoor environment.
The OSHA document states, “Indoor air quality (IAQ) is a
major concern to businesses, schools, building managers,
tenants, and workers because it can impact the health,
comfort, well-being, and productivity of the building
occupants. OSHA recognizes that poor IAQ can be
hazardous to workers’ health and that it is in the best
interest of everyone that building owners, managers, and
employers take a proactive approach to address IAQ
UltraViolet Devices, Inc. (UVDI) has developed products
that directly address many of the issues discussed in
the OSHA document. The company’s Sparks Technology brand
of molecular filtration products are designed to remove
potentially harmful gases and fine particulates from the
indoor environment. The company also manufactures
advanced UV-C products. UV-C technology utilizes
ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) to deactivate
microorganisms that include viruses, bacteria and mold.
These contaminants can cause allergies, trigger asthma
or even cause serious infections. .
products improve IAQ, but also increase worker
productivity,” reported Richard Hayes, President of
UltraViolet Devices, Inc. “The American Society of
Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)
recognize UVGI technologies for reducing transmission of
airborne infectious diseases. Additionally, properly
designed and installed UV-C evaporator coil systems
eliminate mold and bacteria from growing on coil fins
and drain pans and subsequently contaminating the
building’s airstream,” he continued.
