In recent years, indoor air quality (IAQ) has taken center stage among facility maintenance and infection prevention priorities. New technologies and developments have made it possible to create cleaner air in commercial buildings while monitoring air quality in real time. Yet innovation continues to bring improvements to IAQ approaches.

Learn from industry experts who understand the current and future state of IAQ in this one-hour, fast-paced webinar. From updates to an insider look at IAQ strategies, this webinar is for anyone involved in facility cleaning and maintenance.

Topics Include:
  • An explanation of “sick building syndrome” and its relationship to building related illness (BRI)
  • The use of monitoring and do-it-yourself testing to respond to occupant complaints
  • Strategies for creating better, cleaner air in older buildings
  • An overview of “smart buildings” concerning IAQ and how monitoring can help make the smart building smarter
  • Upcoming industry developments to improve IAQ into the future
  • Practical steps to improving IAQ now, including dilution, fresh air make-up, and IAQ equipment

Attendees can engage with our panelists during the webinar and during a dedicated Q&A session. Come prepared with your toughest questions.

Panelists include:
  • Jeff Cross, ISSA Media Director, Moderator
  • Doug Hoffman, Executive Director of NORMI
  • Bethany Uribe, Division Manager at ASAP Restoration

    Principal, iAIRGroup

    John is currently the CEO of Allergy Standards Ltd, an international standards and Certification Body, a company he founded while working as an Emergency Room Doctor. He is also the Principal at the Indoor Air Innovation and Research (iAIR) Institute.

    John’s initial curiosity was sparked by the interplay between the built environment and asthma and allergy trigger factors within indoor spaces. His attention was drawn to the significant amount of time individuals spend indoors, amounting to approximately 80% of their time, juxtaposed with EPA findings indicating indoor air pollution levels may be up to five times higher than outdoor air. Recognizing his role as a clinician primarily addressing the downstream effects of poor indoor air quality through pharmaceutical interventions, John realized the necessity of shifting towards a proactive ‘upstream’ approach centred on patient education and environmental control.

    This realization marked the inception of John’s journey into exploring the interconnectedness between the built environment and health outcomes. Initially focusing on individuals affected by asthma and allergies, John expanded his research endeavours to serve as a liaison between construction professionals, interior design experts, and healthcare professionals. His mission is to facilitate collaboration and promote holistic solutions aimed at optimizing indoor environments for enhanced health and well-being.

    Throughout his career, he has led the development of an international intellectual property portfolio of patents and trademark applications and negotiated complex licensing agreements with large multinationals. John is a medical entrepreneur who qualified as a doctor from Trinity College Dublin in 1996, is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and also holds his United States Medical Licensing exams.

    In addition to his entrepreneurial and business activities, John also maintains an interest in university research and knowledge exchange practices. He is the Entrepreneur in Residence at the Centre for Practice and Healthcare Innovation in the Faculty of Health Sciences as well as a member of the Knowledge Transfer & Innovation Committee, in Trinity College Dublin.

    He is married to Anna, also a medical doctor, and they have three young children.
