Workplace air quality is critically important, as clean air keeps communities healthy and employees productive. However, it can be quite challenging to identify potential contaminants in the air, and determining how best to comply with the myriad of federal, state and local air regulations can be mind-boggling for companies dealing with emissions.
Once companies begin to sort through the various requirements that mandate allowable limits for their facilities’ particular emissions, they will find that the process for compliance is clearly laid out by the regulatory authorities. The regulations set forth a hierarchy of compliance to ensure protection of workers and the environment, with requirements for testing and reporting to prove that compliance. In this guide, we’ll offer insight into these requirements, common solutions to air quality problems, and methods to confirm compliance with all regulations. While every company should have some knowledge of air quality issues, many will find that identifying the right solutions to control emissions is best done by an expert who knows the nuances of the regulatory programs and can ensure all requirements are met.
