Chemical Insights Presents at GA4LE on
Indoor Air Quality
As we re-enter our schools, it has never been more important to design, operate and manage buildings with a focus on good indoor air quality (IAQ) to protect the health of students and staff.
New technologies and challenges bring unintended consequences for human health. Researchers at Chemical Insights are evaluating the impact of emerging technologies, such as 3D printers, on IAQ. The organization is also considering how new COVID-19 protocols intersect with IAQ, both elevating its importance and providing potential new challenges.
On June 28, Dr. Marilyn Black, on behalf of Chemical Insights, participated in the Georgia Chapter of the Association for Learning Environments' Summer Conference in Jekyll Island. Our presentation, "Keeping School Buildings Healthy: Emerging Issues in Managing for Occupant Safety and Health," focused on how to prioritize IAQ, reveal what research found, and focus on how to mitigate unintended consequences.
The session also explored common real-life scenarios specific to schools for determining mitigation strategies that are effective, practical, and safe.
