Why Is Air Quality Important?
Various pollutants may impact human health and the environment. Long-term exposure to hazardous air pollution has been associated with a wide range of human health effects including respiratory symptoms, cancer, hospitalization for heart or lung diseases, and even premature death. Specific groups within the general population may have a greater risk of pollution effects due to a variety of factors. For example, children are often more vulnerable to toxic air pollutants.
Our Air Quality Consultants measure air pollution and air quality at different sites and write reports on the results to determine if pollution levels will cause harm to human health or ecological habitats. We adhere to the guidelines set by the US Environmental Protection Agency, OSHA, the CDC, and local environmental air quality agencies.
