Indoor Air Quality in the Office Environment

The Health, Environment & Work web site offers suggestions for improving indoor
air quality in the office environment. The general statements base partly on
review of search findings and partly on experience. It offers some easy to
follow advices, for example that natural ventilation which is maintenance-free
may be a generally "safer bet" than relying on artificial ventilation which
needs to be properly maintained. It further suggests that the more fluff there
is in a room through carpeting etc, there may be a stronger association with
some symptoms.
