Indoor air quality refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. The North Texas area has one of the highest levels of pollen in the United States, and many individuals have allergic reactions due to the outside air quality. UNT’s Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning systems (HVAC) are designed to filter out much of the pollen. Indoor air quality is affected by a variety of sources other than the outdoor environment such as adhesives, paint, new furniture off-gassing, dust from building materials, etc.
The Risk Management Services (RMS) Industrial Hygienist (IH) investigates indoor air quality concerns for the UNT community and coordinates resolution efforts with UNT Facilities. The RMS IH also works with UNT Facilities Project Managers and UNT System Project Managers to formulate mitigation plans that address potential indoor air quality issues that might result from new construction and building renovations.
