Wellbeing and the importance of measuring Indoor Environmental Quality
This webinar introduces the concept of Indoor Environmental Quality and its main components, describes what wellbeing is, and more specifically how our wellbeing can be affected by the buildings we occupy from an engineering perspective. We will then look at the five main components of indoor Environmental Quality and the techniques used to measure them. Finally, we will then discuss why organisations should ensure they have an established wellbeing strategy and how wellbeing measures can be set, tracked, and maintained.
