University building occupants who suspect that discomfort or illness in the workplace is attributable to conditions affecting the indoor air quality of that space
Good indoor air quality enhances occupant health and comfort and contributes to increased workplace productivity and a general sense of well-being. Indoor air quality issues can arise from a variety of sources ranging from chemical spills in laboratories to odors from construction projects. The mere presence of detectable dust or odors even at levels that are typically considered to be harmless may trigger occupant concerns based on perceived hazards. Indoor air quality investigations can be conducted to determine if the affected space is safe for occupancy and/or if conditions can be improved to address comfort issues.
ASU will assist university building occupants who suspect that an office, laboratory, or classroom may have an indoor air quality problem through investigating complaints forwarded to their campus ASU Facilities Development and Management Department.

More information on indoor air quality is available on the EH&S Web site.
