Report Indoor Air Quality Concerns with New Questionnaire

EHRS is now offering a questionnaire that can be filled out by anyone who has a concern about the indoor air quality (IAQ) in their work space. Concerns can range from things like odors that are causing discomfort, dusty conditions, or even illnesses or allergies. If you believe that you are having an indoor air quality issue, please complete the questionnaire available here. EHRS staff will review the questionnaire and contact you to discuss your concerns. Any IAQ concern that poses an immediate danger to life and health should be reported to Campus Safety Services at (215) 204-1234 (1-1234).
