Indoor Air Quality, protection for American workers

25 Signatures Goal: 50,000

Right now in this country, if you work inside a sealed office building and your employer has control over the air quality inside your building, you have no protection if you develop any health problems related to the indoor air environment. Indoor air pollution is among the top 5 environmental risks to public health according to the EPA, yet they have no enforceable regulations to protect people from these hazards without identifying one of the possible thousands of contaminants that could be in the air. If you work in an office building and experience unexplained, or health concerns that doctors can't seem to diagnose, such as burning eyes, nose and throat, sinus congestion, headaches, dizziness, disorientation, ringing in the ears, nose bleeds, irregular heartbeat, exhaustion, chronic sinus infections, chronic fatigue, multiple chemical sensitivity, difficulty thinking or concentrating, you may be exposed to a toxic health environment. Not everyone experiences the same combination of health issues, OSHA, NIOSH, the EPA, and the WHO are well aware of the potential hazards and health effects of poor indoor air quality but none of these agencies offer any protection to the worker. Please join me in requesting that OSHA and the EPA protect the American people by instituting regulations specific to indoor air quality in any commercial building, government building, or school. Thank you
