The Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers (OHCOW) has collaborated with the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) to create a mobile app, called “AirAssess”, that allows people to assess the air quality in their workplace.
AirAssess gives users a questionnaire that asks simple questions about conditions in their workplace. The questions include topics like stress, allergens, and various environmental factors. In a statement, CCOHS president and CEO Gareth Jones said:
“CCOHS has enjoyed a longstanding relationship with OHCOW, and it is always exciting when our shared goals and collaborations produce something that can truly make a positive impact on the health and safety of workers. The app is one such example.”
After answering all the questions, the app will provide information that will help uncover issues. The app will provide links and ideas on how to take action and improve the air quality in your workplace.
AirAssess is available as a free download from the App Store. The app requires any device running iOS 8.0 or later and contains no in-app purchases.
