Air quality monitoring for youth

air monitoring

Monitoring of the indoor #AQ is the first measure to be taken for the vulnerable groups

Medical experts are calling for councils to be given new powers to tackle indoor #airpollution amid mounting evidence it is threatening the health of children in schools, nurseries and homes across the #UK.

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) and the Royal College of Physicians want local authorities to be able to compel schools and other public buildings with poor air quality to make #urgent improvements.

The move comes as a #newreport released by the two medical bodies highlights the impact indoor air pollution has on a range of childhood #healthproblems from asthma to conjunctivitis, dermatitis and eczema.

“We’re finally paying attention to the quality of our outdoor air and this is long overdue [but] it’s harder to get population level data on the quality of indoor air."

“Children in the UK spend most of their time indoors, with just 68 minutes spent outside on an average day.."

Sources of indoor pollution can be smoking, damp, traffic fumes, cooking, wood burning, dust, chemicals from building materials and furnishings, aerosols, and cleaning products.
