4 reasons why clean air is a valuable business resource
Francesca Brady

Businesses are typically very careful about resource management, but some equally important factors are often taken for granted. Ensuring your team have access to fresh, clean air can contribute towards the health and happiness of your team and can even impact the success of your business, yet too often the importance of environmental factors are overlooked.

Here are some key points for anyone who wants to discover more about the negative impacts of poor air quality:


Higher oxygen levels positively impact productivity

There is an abundance of scientific evidence to back the claim that fresh air is necessary for optimal performance in the workplace. Team members who work in busy, confined offices or attend long meetings in poorly ventilated rooms are more likely to experience difficulties with concentration and even suffer adverse health effects. This is often due to higher concentrations of carbon dioxide, a gas that is formed by burning fuels, animal and plant matter, it can also be formed by breathing. As such, is in the best interest of business owners to continuously monitor CO2 levels in key spaces, and take measures to improve air quality if the concentration rises over safe levels.

Good ventilation reduces the absence rate of your team

In addition to short term effects, poor air quality can also affect the overall health of your team, which is directly reflected in the absence rate. It’s not hard to understand why – germs are disseminated much faster when air isn’t refreshed, increasing the chances that multiple people are susceptible to catch and spread an illness. Investing in a good ventilation system and ensuring it is sufficiently maintained is a much more economical alternative to losing key team members for prolonged periods. A meta-analysis of 24 studies conducted in 2006 found that short term sick leave can be reduced by as much as 35% by improved ventilation!


Healthier employees are more satisfied

Many modern companies are becoming aware of the recruitment impact of employee wellbeing policies. Access to clean air at the workplace is a factor which many candidates used to take for granted. Awareness about the relevance of health protection can be a strong selling point, especially as recent studies and information regarding potential negative health impacts caused by unhealthy spaces are becoming more widely discussed. In addition, your entire team are likely to react favorably to any changes aimed at improving conditions in the office, causing a spike in loyalty and helping retain key employees.

The impact of sick building syndrome

Clean air is a valuable resource because it literally protects the value of physical assets, such as office buildings or manufacturing facilities. Bad ventilation and poor protection against moisture can gradually escalate into a condition known as ‘Sick Building Syndrome’, where employees become ill specifically because they are spending too much time in contaminated space. Naturally, this factor can reduce interest for tenancy and makes it more difficult to monetise your space efficiently.
