Is Your Employee Productivity "Sick"? It could be Dust

Everyone knows a pleasant work environment makes happy, productive employees. But nice pictures on the wall and some pretty flowers aren't going to smooth over the impact of the real saboteurs of productivity. Sometimes the physical work environment conceals health threats that crush efficiency and drive up absenteeism. 

One of the major culprits contributing to health issues in the workplace is excess dust. Combating dust can be a real challenge, especially in large commercial or medical buildings. Dust mites are distributed through ducts, after which they linger on work surfaces and upholstery. These are the critters responsible for allergies, asthma, and eczema. Dust mites are one of the factors that make a building succumb to "sick building syndrome."

Founded in 1907, Hillyard is a leading manufacturer and distributor of cleaning and hygiene solutions. Helping people deliver clean, safe and healthy facilities is our purpose, passion and focus. It's what we do. It's everything we do - every day!  We have the cleaning expertise and know-how that matters. It's how we help improve outcomes, lower cleaning costs, and deliver results that your stakeholders demand. 

With over a century of expertise in cleaning and sanitation products, Hillyard understands the importance of healthy indoor environments. And, with decades of experience working with schools, we have particular understanding of the stakes for school campuses. On school campuses, poor indoor environmental quality (IEQ) can lead to a large range of direct and indirect problems. Obviously, poor cleaning and disinfection processes can cause illness, requiring absence from school.

And even when health problems do not lead to absence, symptoms from illnesses can lead to decreased performance while at school. Recent studies suggest that poor IEQ may directly reduce a person's ability to perform specific mental tasks requiring concentration, calculation or memory. Research is also beginning to show linkages between IEQ and various emotional factors including image, self-esteem and attitude, all of which affect academic performance. An effective school cleaning and disinfection program can have a profound positive impact on occupant health, well-being and performance.
