Indoor Air Quality

The University of West Georgia recognizes the impact that indoor air quality has in the workplace and in your residence.  In an effort to provide the community with optimum Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), an IAQ Management Plan has been put in place.  This plan, which applies to all buildings owned or leased by UWG, strives to maintain indoor air quality standards that protect the health of faculty, staff and students. The program's focus is to:

• Prevent illness, injury, and adverse health symptoms associated with poor indoor air quality
• Respond to indoor air quality complaints effectively and to make recommendations for improvement
• Maintain indoor air quality within acceptable levels according to consensus guidelines
• Provide recommendations on IAQ issues to be considered in new building design.
