Thread Name: Dead air in buildings - making you sick?
Subject: RE: Dead air in buildings - making you sick?
Take sick building syndrome very very seriously. If you have a choice when deciding between job a and job b, and job b has a window that opens, take that and tell job a why. IN FAact, put it in writing. Make sure the higher ups know that they are losing good potential employees. If you work in a sick building, look for another job if you possibly can. Have an exit interview and tell them why. If you are involved in aplanning a building, have lots of openable windows. If you are in personnel or do hiring, find out about regulations for clean air and tell people that there will be fresh air. That can mean cold air. Tell them to wear sweaters and tell them upon hiring and put it in writing. There are more diseases caused by the 1 person who "feels a draft" in an office and therefore the windows stay shut all year than have been calculated. Find out what your children are breathing in school. I thank God every day for my beautiful fresh air where I work, even though walking to work it can be a little fresher than I like, seeing as it wants to blow me down sometimes. A price I gladly pay. mg
