School Environment

Most people are aware that outdoor air pollution can impact their health, but indoor air pollution can also have significant and harmful health effects. Students spend an average of 7 to 8 hours a day in school, which mostly spend indoor. Children breathe more air, eat more food and drink more liquid in proportion to their body weight than adults. Therefore, air quality in schools is of particular concern.

 

Failure to prevent or respond promptly to IAQ problems can increase long- and short-term health problems for students and staff such as: cough, eye irritation, headache, allergic reactions, and in rarer cases, life-threatening conditions such as Legionnaire’s disease, or carbon monoxide poisoning.

 

The comfortable and healthy air in the classroom can affect learning and development, but also impact on students’ achievements and accomplishments. Besides, failure to improve school indoor air quality in a timely and effective manner may lead to health problems and expensive maintenance and potential problems in the long term.
