Air pollution is a critical issue in Thailand. According to the State of Global Air 2020 Report, there were about 32,000 premature deaths in Thailand in 2019. We know that exposure to air pollutants can have short-term health effects, such as irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and lungs, coughing, runny nose and shortness of breath. But the long-term effects of air pollution are much worse. 

Outdoor air is clearly and issue, but consider that we spend over 90% of our time indoors and whilst we believe that we are safer indoors, the US EPA has advised that Indoor Air Quality is actually 2-5 times worse than outside air. Furthermore, our hermetically sealed buildings are breeding grounds for moulds, bacteria and virus (including Covid). What is your OH&S responsibility to your staff and visitors?

The more you know about the air you breathe, the more you can protect your health and take steps to make the air cleaner and healthier and we will cover in this presentation the following topics and is directed at Facility Managers, HR Directors and Managers, Senior Management and Property Owners:

  • Gases, PM, AQI: what are the different pollutants and what are their impacts?
  • Reference measurements and Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Stations: source of reliable data
  • Monitoring of Air Pollution in Thailand: The Thai Pollution Control Department and their achievements
  • Evolution of the outdoor Air quality in Thailand and possible action plans.    
  • Indoor Air Quality - Why is it worse than outside air.
  • Indoor Air Quality Monitoring
  • Indoor Air Quality Solutions
  • What is a “Sick Building”  - Micro-organisms and pandemic control in our buildings and offices
