Health and Productivity

Health and Productivity

The Indoor Health and Productivity Project works toward developing a more complete understanding of the relationship between physical attributes of the workplace (such as its thermal attributes, lighting, ventilation and air quality) in non-residential and non-industrial buildings, as well as the health and productivity of their occupants.

Research addresses the following topics:

  • Indoor dampness, biological contaminants and health
  • Indoor volatile organic compounds and health
  • Impacts of indoor environments on human performance and productivity
  • Benefits of improving indoor environmental quality
  • Air cleaning effects on health and perceived air quality
  • Climate change, indoor environmental quality and health
