The training program, developed with over six decades of Camfil's expertise, covers essential aspects of the Chief Airgonomics Officer role within an organization. Topics include the significance of appointing a Chief Airgonomics Officer, facts and figures on IAQ, the role of air filtration technologies, strategies for monitoring IAQ, steps for improving IAQ, and effective communication and education strategies for employees. The course, delivered in a video format, is approximately 40 minutes long and includes a brief quiz at the end of each module.

"Clean air is a human right, and with the Airgonomics 101 Training program, we empower professionals to create healthier IAQ environments," said Alain Bérard, the first Chief Airgonomics Officer at Camfil. "Our goal is to share the best Airgonomics practices for workplaces globally, stemming from Camfil's extensive knowledge in the field".

Research has consistently shown that ventilation is a crucial factor in health. With individuals spending up to 90% of their time indoors, clean air and the practice of Airgonomics can significantly benefit human health, businesses, and the economy. Improved air quality can reduce symptoms of sick building syndrome, cut absenteeism by reducing infectious disease transmission, and consequently, lead to higher productivity and healthier employees.

The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) found that work absences due to poor air cost Britain approximately 600m BP annually, with 3m working days lost every year. Enhanced indoor air quality can result in an additional 900m BP in wages from increased work time. Moreover, a recent study highlighted that improved air ventilation and better IAQ can significantly enhance human cognitive functions. This includes a 131% improvement in crisis response, 288% improvement in strategic thinking, and 299% improvement in information usage.

Camfil urges businesses to recognize the importance of IAQ and participate in the world's first training program on Airgonomics. This training offers a unique opportunity to optimize air quality for enhancing employees' health and productivity.
