A brief description of the institution's indoor air quality plan, policy, and/or practices:
The Department of Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) developed an Indoor Air Quality Policy that was approved in 2002. UNC is committed to providing a work environment free of recognized hazards. Review of the Indoor Air Quality Policy is performed annually and updated if needed based on emerging practices and procedures. Building occupants can submit a Request for Indoor Air Quality Investigation form, which is available online. If warranted, an EHS Industrial Hygienist will conduct an initial on-site IAQ investigation to evaluate the site/work area and building for probable sources of contaminants. If necessary a Phase II IAQ investigation will be conducted to provide more detailed information regarding the nature of the problem. EHS prepares written reports of investigation results and proposes remedial measures as required.
