How Safe Water and Pure Indoor Air Can Make Your Employees More Productive

Posted on September 26, 2018 How Safe Water and Pure Indoor Air Can Make Your Employees More Productive

Whether you are a start-up or a decade old organization, employee satisfaction is directly related to your success. Paying attention to employee wellness is one of the important parts of running a successful business. After all, when your employees are healthy and happy, your most crucial assets are protected!

Various studies have shown that employees do their best when they feel good mentally and physically. There is plenty of evidence to suggest that the performance of an entire company can be directly linked to the well-being of its employees. It has been estimated that the average employees operate at only 65% of their potential if not properly hydrated.

Providing access to purified and safe drinking water by installing commercial water purifiers in the workplace is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to ensure that employees significantly increase their water consumption and bring improvements to their health as a result.

Likewise, UVGI air disinfection systems help to improve indoor air quality, and prevent the spread of deadly viruses and other contaminants which is the current need during these COVID 19 times.

A] Benefits of Safe Water

    • Less Sick Days

35% of all gastrointestinal illness are water-related. When employees take off from work for stomach issues, productivity suffers. Additionally, employees can often feel more stressed when they return to work with a larger workload post taking time off for illnesses that can be prevented in the first place. Installing commercial UV water purifiers can eliminate harmful bacteria and viruses from water and ensure that your employees stay healthy and hydrated.

    • Boosts Productivity

According to a study by Weill Cornell Medical College’s Brain and Mind Research Institute, dehydration can cause employees to fall into the dreaded afternoon slump. This study claims that less than 5% water loss can suppress blood flow to the brain, which in turn reduces reaction time, performance, and attention.

This can be avoided by installing a commercial water purifier for your office staff that offers them safe and clean drinking water throughout the day. The abundance of healthy and safe drinking water will keep your employees’ minds on their work, and their bodies ready to tackle every task.

    • Saves Money

Another big advantage of installing a commercial water purifier is that you don’t need to keep buying bottled water in your commercial establishments, thereby saving on costs, manpower and other administrative hassles. Also, water from a water purifier is safer than that from the bottles, as they may contain water from dubious sources or get contaminated in the process of transportation and handling.  Further, bottled water is hazardous to the environment as it creates a huge amount of plastic waste.

B] Benefits of Pure Indoor Air

Along with pure water, Indoor air quality (IAQ) in the workplace is another important subject of much attention these days. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the quality of air within and around buildings. Indoor air directly or indirectly affects the health of people working in that building. In many commercial spaces such as offices, colleges and hospitals, HVAC systems (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems) are used for cooling and air ventilation.

 Two main units of HVAC System are;

      • Air Handling Unit – This unit cools down the air with the help of water.
      • Ventilation Ducts– These circulate the cool air in the building

In both units, humidity levels are always high, which allow for bacteria, viruses, fungi, and molds to thrive. Very often, Bio-film is formed on cooling coils in the Air Handling Unit and on the walls of the ventilation duct. Air passing through these ducts gets contaminated and may transfer diseases from one room to another, from one person to another.

Thus, here UV Air Disinfection Systems is an ideal choice as it eliminates up to 99.9% of viruses and kills up to 90% of certain airborne bacteria passing through the air system, thereby offering pure indoor air.

C] FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are the symptoms of poor air quality?

The common symptoms of poor air quality include fatigue, headache, dryness and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin. Coughing, sneezing, nausea and sinus congestion are some of the other symptoms. Most people notice these symptoms after several hours at work and start to feel better once they leave the work building/premise.

 2. Can you get sick from bad air quality?

If Indoor Air Quality is poor, then it gives a Sick Building Syndrome and creates hazardous effects on people working in that premise.

People Breathing the Same Air

In big office complexes, thousands of employees work together, often more than 100 on each floor, serviced by one HVAC unit. Some may be suffering from airborne diseases like common cold, influenza etc. In such cases, chances of cross-contamination are high.

 Effect on Concentration and Quality of Work

Poor Indoor Air Quality gives rise to Sick Building Syndrome, which is experienced as a feeling of fatigue and exhaustion at the end of the day, often accompanied by headaches. This affects concentration and the quality of work.

Frequent Absenteeism

People with a lower immune system are more prone to pick up infections in a closed space. This results in frequent absenteeism.

3. How can we improve air quality in the office?

To improve the Indoor air quality installing UVGI air disinfection systems have become a necessity. Using UV technology for air disinfection is highly effective in killing bacteria, fungi, and viruses. A well-designed UV air disinfection system like the UltraCoil & UltraDuct system by Alfaa UV, when installed within the HVAC system keeps the coils and ducts bacteria-free and greatly reduces the chance of cross-contamination.

4. Why is indoor air quality important?

Since most employees spend a significant amount of time indoors, poor air quality can affect their health, which would invariably reflect in their work. Like mentioned above, poor IAQ hampers productivity, affects concentration, and can lead to serious long-term health complications. Thus, to avoid these, ensuring the indoor air quality is optimal at all times is extremely important.

The Bottom Line

Providing a healthy and safe environment for the people in your workplace should be the primary concern for a good business. As such, installing the right commercial water purifier and UVGI air disinfection systems can be a great start.
