Description:The young woman pictured here was photographed while she was taking a bite out of an apple in an outdoors setting, while enjoying the fresh air, on what appeared to be a beautiful Georgian day. It’s not only invigorating, but exiting the indoor workplace environment in order to breathe some fresh air, often removes workers from an atmosphere containing pollutants to which they are exposed throughout the course of their workday. Apples also are a wonderfully healthy choice when having a between meal snack, as well.
Indoor environments are highly complex and building occupants may be exposed to a variety of contaminants (in the form of gases and particles) from office machines, cleaning products, construction activities, carpets and furnishings, perfumes, cigarette smoke, water-damaged building materials, microbial growth (fungal / mold and bacterial), insects, and outdoor pollutants. Other factors such as indoor temperatures, relative humidity, and ventilation levels can also affect how individuals respond to the indoor environment.
