Forget Your 4Ps and Your Building May Suffer from IAQ Disease!

Mike McGuinness, CIH, ABIH-IEQ, CIAQP, CET

RK Occupational & Environmental Analysis

Phillipsburg, NJ

About this program:

If you never get away from basics, you'll never have to go back to them when things get complicated because they will not get complicated.. This presentation discusses the protocols to follow when performing IEQ Assessments and Diagnostics and the factors that determine how healthy or sick a building may be. Things always boil down to determining how the 4 P's of IEQ relate to each other and how IEQ issues may arise when they do not act in harmony with each other. We will discuss what factors determine a building's health and how insuring harmony between and among the 4 P's of IEQ will insure a healthy building.
