Indoor Environmental Quality

A new topic page on the NIOSH Web site brings together the agency's various
resources on work-related indoor environmental quality, making it easier for
employers, employees and building managers to find targeted tools.

"Indoor environmental quality" refers to the interactions among many factors in
indoor environments, including the quality of the air, presence of chemical
pollutants and microbiological pollutants such as mold, physical conditions
such as temperature and humidity, ergonomic factors and stressors from
social/psychological or work organizational factors.

The resources include:

- Building Air Quality

- The Building Air Quality Action Plan

- Texts of several recent NIOSH health hazard evaluation reports
