NSC’s “Indoor Air Quality” Interactive CD-ROM Course shows employees the potentially harmful effects of poor air quality, and will help them identify, prevent and correct air quality problems. Air is all around us and we need it to stay alive. But how “clean” is the air that we breathe? While we know that it contains oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen, there may be other substances in the air that we do not know about… such as dust, mites, bacteria and hazardous fumes. Contaminated air inside a workplace can lead to major health problems… long-term exposure to contaminants can cause asthma and even emphysema. In fact, indoor air quality is enough of a concern that the EPA and NIOSH have created an Indoor Air Quality Guide. Areas covered in the course include the sources of air contamination, adhesives, solvents and vehicle exhaust, how a building’s occupants affect indoor air quality, smoking and second-hand smoke, the use of humidifiers and dehumidifiers, pollutant pathways, including air ducts and crawlspaces, heating and air-conditioning systems, the symptoms and signs of poor air quality, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood… and retained. Also designed with the training manager in mind, all courses in the Interactive CD-ROM Training Library include a learning management system (at no additional cost). Using this system, trainers can set up “Pre” and “Post” tests… establish log-in procedures… even define and set up curriculum for various job classes. The system also collects and organizes employee performance information through a powerful relational database, which can generate a number of record-keeping and tracking reports… and has a database “import/export” feature, which allows information to be transferred to and from an external database (such as a company’s personnel database). The course is one of over 100 titles currently available in the Interactive CD-ROM Training Library.
