Good indoor air is important to Science Park. That’s why the Science Park facility and event services unit at Business Joensuu has set up an indoor air working group to plan and schedule possible investigation work and research measures. The group will also notify a representative of the company that reported the problem on the progress of the measures. The investigation work is coordinated by the indoor air working group.
Reporting a problem with indoor air
If you observe an indoor air problem at the workplace, such as an abnormal smell, stuffy air or personnel symptoms, notify your employer (supervisor) and/or the occupational safety and health representative. Do the same if you notice any signs of moisture damage on the surfaces or structures at the workplace.
The employer serves as the company representative and they must notify the property manager for Science Park facilities and event services. We recommend submitting your notification by e-mail.
If employees experience symptoms at the workplace, the supervisor must also contact the company’s own occupational health care to assess the needs for group-level occupational health care measures. Individual employees can also contact their occupational health care services provider if they suspect that their symptoms are being caused by the indoor air at the workplace. Statements provided by occupational health care can be used to support the investigation.
After receiving a notification, the property manager and the indoor air working group will jointly initiate investigation measures to determine and solve the problem. The supervisor of the company that submitted the notification of progress in the matter.
Communicating about an indoor air problem
Communication must be consistent and open in order to maintain trust and facilitate the resolution of a potential indoor air problem. The indoor air working group has primary responsibility for communication. The group will provide information on the measures and their progress to the company representative, who will then communicate with the company personnel about those measures.
