Zehnder is working with environment charity Global Action Plan on a drive to bring better, healthier air to the manufacturing sector, one of the largest employers in the UK. We are part of a growing movement that brings together individuals and organisations leading the drive for clean air everywhere.
Poor air quality is the largest environmental health risk we face today, according to the World Health Organisation. It’s responsible for 36,000 deaths a year in the UK and affects the health of millions more. With the average employee spending around a third of their day at work, it’s therefore important to tackle air pollution in our factories, offices and other places of work – and to do it urgently.
Our whitepaper presents a renewed case for tackling air pollution in manufacturing industry workplaces as workers continue to be exposed to unhealthy levels of airborne hazards and pollution.
In line with the renewed findings, the paper further outlines recommended actions for policy makers, regulators and manufacturers to protect the health of vulnerable workers in the sector.

Bitesize 1 : Air pollution in the workplace – the situation
Indoor air pollution remains at unacceptable levels in many industries, particularly manufacturing – damaging health, productivity and business. How do we address health and safety in a post-COVID-19 world?
Bitesize 2: Air pollution in the workplace – health impact
Poor air quality can trigger asthma attacks and contributes to heart disease, lung cancer, diabetes and dementia. Read about the health impacts in stark detail – and the substances behind them.
Bitesize 3: Air pollution in the workplace – regulation & enforcement
Regulations governing indoor air pollution are inadequate, and so is enforcement of the rules by an over-stretched system. The case for radically improving standards and compliance is crystal clear.
Bitesize 4: Air pollution in the workplace – solutions
The business case for clean air at work, what companies and regulators need to do, and a blueprint for reducing exposure to hazards in industry.
