Poor air quality, caused by air pollution and accentuated by global
warming, is increasing health problems for the population. Obsolete
structures can help to further increase health risks. The quality of the air
we breathe is increasingly becoming an essential aspect of well-being.
Inadequate ventilation or relative humidity levels, as well as excessive
variations in temperature and poor cleaning and maintenance, or even
circulation of chemical pollutants carried by the air, can significantly
compromise the quality of the air we breathe even indoors, allowing the
proliferation in the air ducts of viruses, bacteria, chemical agents
and unpleasant odors.
Air quality in the working environment is also regulated by Legislative Decree No 81 of 9 April 2008,
which includes provisions for the protection of workers against the
risks arising from exposure to chemical, physical and biological agents.
Standards are becoming more and more stringent, especially in the workplace and in social sharing.
