Jan. 6: App Helps Identify Indoor Air Quality Problems


The Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers and CCOHS have developed a mobile app to help individuals find solutions to indoor air quality problems in their workplace. The app, AirAssess – Improve Indoor Air Quality at Work, asks simple questions about the user’s current work conditions, such as workplace stress levels, allergies and environmental factors. Based on the answers, the app will look for links and provide users with ideas to help their workplace take action on the possible air quality issues. The free app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store, BlackBerry World and Google Play, as well as the OHCOW and CCOHS websites.
