The indoor air quality (IAQ) and its impact on health comfort, and work-performance is an issue of increasing concern in office workers. The role of the occupational health services in the assessment and management of IAQ problems has been discussed by experts of the Scientific Committee on Indoor Air Quality and Health of the ICOH and the following has been proposed.
A team approach with cooperation between medical and technical experts is recommended in the assessment and management of IAQ problems. Further, synergies with other risk factors, e.g. psychosocial stress may potentially also be important and need to be evaluated.
