Air Monitoring

Ensuring indoor air quality in hospitals and other healthcare facilities

Oct 12 2021

Studies have confirmed that even in modern healthcare facilities with mechanical ventilation and active scavenging systems, employee exposure to various gaseous compounds is still commonplace. By combining sufficient ventilation with waste gas scavenging and continuous air monitoring and sampling, safety professionals can substantially improve both patient and working staff safety in these facilities.

Despite the issue of hospital air quality being well acknowledged by safety professionals, regular exposures still occur among the staff working in these locations (). Improved solutions and new innovations in healthcare air ventilation, gas scavenging and air quality monitoring are at the forefront of minimising these exposures. When done right, these are central elements in ensuring good indoor air quality in hospitals and other healthcare facilities, thereby minimising negative airborne health effects.
