Taking a bead on indoor air pollution

A conference on indoor air quality was held recently in Makati. Jackson Tseng, an air quality expert from the USA and Dr. Wong Wei Khiang, president of the Institute of Air Quality in Malaysia, confirmed that poor air quality inside hospitals, skyscrapers, condominiums and offices could cause chronic illnesses to building occupants. Tseng said structures should be completely compliant with environmental air quality standards.  Regular checking and cleaning of these systems could save lives and millions of pesos worth of health-related cost, he said. Dr. Khiang added that as more people get sick from dirty air, companies suffer from losses which affect overall productivity and performance. Both agreed that mold remediation work can save companies thousands of dollars worth of potential losses.  At the conference were (from left to right):  Aila Combs, REDEC business unit head; Bienvenido Cruz, REDEC SVP-COO; Engr. Nelia Granadillos, DoLE division chief; Charlie Carmona, general manager, PIAHSTREAMS; Jackson Tseng;  and Dr. Wong Wei Khiang.
