A brief description of the institution’s indoor air quality program(s) (including information about regular auditing or monitoring, mechanisms for occupants to register complaints, and action plans):

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is simply defined as maintaining an indoor environment that is conducive to getting work done in a safe and healthy way. Environmental Health and Safety is responsible to ensure that people are not exposed to health hazards. Many IAQ complaints are not the result of health hazards but are nuisance issues due to poor circulation, make-up air, humidity, and temperature control. Campus Facilities Facility Operations maintains and coordinates the building's air handler systems that supply a comfortable indoor environment.
IAQ complaints should first be directed to the respective Building Coordinator who will coordinate the necessary resources to address the problem. A list of the campus building coordinators can be found in the campus directory or can be found at their website. If a health hazard is suspected, the building coordinator or Campus Facilities will contact the Industrial Hygiene Office at EHS as a resource to provide IAQ support.
