Over the last couple of months, we have been working on something really exciting to help offices and schools to safely reopen or remain open. The current pandemic has made us all think about the air that we’re breathing, especially when we are inside.
We actually spend 90% of our time indoors and a huge chunk of that is inside the buildings where we learn or work - offices and schools1.
As we have all learned over the last few months, indoor spaces shared closely with other people tend to be where viruses spread the most. And this is exactly why we want to help create buildings where people thrive, but viruses don’t.
If you manage a building, whether it is a school, office or public building, you also have to put in place measures to monitor and mitigate this last risk - which has a lot to do with how your building’s heating, cooling and ventilation is operated.
A challenge most of you have probably faced recently. But how do you do this? How do you ensure the workplace you manage is healthy?
We want to help you manage the risk of airborne transmission and how to operate best operate your buildings. Today I share with you the results of our work. The Airthings Virus Risk Indicator gives you a comprehensive overview of the airborne virus risk in your building and comes with adapted suggestions for how to manage and reduce that risk.
