A brief description of the institution’s indoor air quality program(s) (including information about regular auditing or monitoring, mechanisms for occupants to register complaints, and action plans):
CENTRAL CAROLINA COMMUNITY COLLEGE INDOOR AIR QUALITY POLICY Central Carolina Community College is committed to providing a work environment that is free of recognized hazards and to investigate complaints that may be related to poor indoor air quality (IAQ). Acceptable indoor air quality is air in which there are no known contaminants at harmful concentrations. Poor indoor air quality may be caused by vapors, dust generated in the work place, materials infiltrating from outside sources, fungal, mildew growth or problems with ventilation systems. PREVENTION OF INDOOR AIR QUAILITY PROBLEMS IAQ issues are avoided by preventive maintenance practices and timely repairs to the HVAC Systems. Water damaged areas are cleaned within certain time limits to prevent initiation of fungal growth. Faculty and Staff should report possible plumbing, roof and HVAC problems as they are found to prevent IAQ problems. INDOOR AIR QUALITY PROBLEMS OR CONCERNS Faculty and Staff members who experience irritations that may be related to indoor air quality should report these to the Physical Plant Secretary. The Safety Coordinator and the Maintenance Supervisor will then investigate these issues. IDENTIFICATION OF IAQ PROBLEMS The physical plant department will identify odors, significant mold growth, faulty building humidification problems and correct as found. Sources and health related issues that cannot be identified will be evaluated by the Environmental Health and Safety Institute. These services will be provided through the state contract with Blue Ridge Community College.
