  • Have concerns about air quality in your workplace? Ben Simons, Zehnder, recommends that you can start by looking at the current air quality levels, then from there, you need to build in a progress solution that addresses it.
  • “…but if they did have filtration on site, that would have ameliorated that particular episode” – Keith Cotton, Global Action Plan
