Air Monitoring Safety Videos
Indoor Air Quality - Most people are aware that outdoor air pollution can damage their health, but may not know that indoor air pollution can also have significant harmful effects. US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) studies of human exposure to air pollutants indicates that indoor levels of many pollutants may be 25 times and occasionally more than 100 times higher than outdoor levels. These levels of indoor air pollutants are of particular concern because it is estimated that most people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors.
Respiratory Training - Your organization will provide specific training, but this program is designed to give you some information about personal protection under adverse or hazardous conditions. We all know that chemicals and hazardous materials may have an adverse affect upon your health, but the effect may not show up for years later after repeated or long term exposure.
Most of us are familiar with large oil spills, hazardous waste, and materials and certainly we understand the need for clean air. This is perhaps EPAís major problem to solve. Clean air is easy to talk about, but difficult to control or make cleaner. Understanding the problem can go a long way in educating people about air quality and why itís so important. The Clean Air Act is the comprehensive Federal law that regulates air emissions from area, stationary, and mobile sources.
