Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality (IAQ) has become a matter of increased concern in the UCSC campus community. This is not surprising since most of us spend 80 to 90 percent of our time indoors. The Environmental Health and Safety Office (EH&S) is routinely asked to address IAQ concerns, so we have put together these links to provide you with some background information on this persistent problem. EH&S also encourages you to review the UC Indoor Air Quality Committee document regarding what to expect during a routine Indoor Air Quality investigation at UCSC.
