Indoor air quality (IAQ) is an important workplace health issue. According to Environment Canada, the physical symptoms commonly attributed to IAQ problems include headache, fatigue, shortness of breath, sinus congestion, coughing, sneezing, skin irritation, dizziness, nausea and eye, nose, and throat irritation. And certain building conditions, such as leaks, excessive humidity and poor ventilation, can impact IAQ in the facility.
