We perform accurate office air quality testing, focused on measuring pollutants, allergens and microorganisms present in the air that circulates around individual offices, open-plan workspaces and common areas. If you are preparing for the return of employees in line with government recommendations, we can help you to ensure that the environment you provide for your workers is as healthy as possible. Whilst the detection of individual COVID-19 viral particles is beyond the reach of current air testing technology, the levels of other contaminants will provide a good indication of the general air quality in various parts of your offices, enabling you to increase filtration methods where necessary.
Our office air quality testing can help you to ensure that your workplace is in compliance with HSE occupational exposure limits, as well as those set by industry bodies such as the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers. Failure to comply with these limits could not only put your employees at risk, it could result in the temporary closure of your offices in the event of an HSE spot check. Don’t take chances with the health of your staff: contact us to arrange an air quality test at your offices as soon as possible.
In addition to our air quality testing services, we also provide a number of complementary services that are designed to help companies prepare for the arrival of greater numbers of employees in their offices as COVID-19 restrictions are relaxed. These include water hygiene services, washroom cleaning services and general deep cleaning services for offices of all types and sizes. Call us today to find out how we can help you get ready for fully reopening your business.
We understand that keeping ahead of malicious microbes, while necessary, is inconvenient to say the least. But the benefits go beyond simply knowing that your company or institution is in compliance with government regulations. A healthy work environment is also good for your bottom line. Here’s how:
Happier employees – Numerous studies have confirmed what many people have long suspected: happy workers are more productive workers. When you go the extra mile for your staff, they notice. As a result, they are likely to be happier, more loyal to the company and more productive. All of those things are going to have a positive effect on your bottom line.
Fewer sick days – Often times when staff members are feeling under the weather it’s caused by dirty air in the workspace. Besides the coronavirus, mould, pollen, dust and other environmental pollutants circulating in the office or store can cause flu-like symptoms. Detecting and dealing with these irritants will make your workspace a healthier place and result in fewer sick days.
A more energy-efficient office – The past 2 years have forced untold numbers of businesses into survival mode. As things slowly return to normal those business owners are concerned about controlling expenses, and rightfully so. Cleaner air is easier for the HVAC system to process and distribute than dirty air. Dirty air forces the system to work harder which, in turn, forces it to consume more energy.
A better impression – There is a discernible difference between a space that’s filled with dirty air and one where clean, crisp air is circulating. Staff members are not the only ones who notice this difference. In fact, it may be most noticeable to people who only enter the space occasionally, such as customers, clients and guests. Impressing them will create all kinds of goodwill toward your business.
No fines – This may be stating the obvious but it warrants mentioning anyway. Staying in compliance with government rules regarding employee safety and health will help your business steer clear of potentially significant fines. To date, millions of pounds in fines have been dished out, and with new measures being implemented in response to the omicron variant, this is no time to let your guard down.
There are bound to be bumps in the road on the journey back to normalcy. Make sure that the road is no bumpier than it needs to be by contacting Clean Air UK today.
