April 19, 2022 ABM Voices Support for New IAQ Guidelines

ABM has issued a statement on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Air in Buildings Challenge.

Part of U.S. President Joe Biden’s broader National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan released last month, the EPA’s challenge calls for a concise set of guidelines to assist facility managers with reducing risks from airborne viruses and other indoor contaminants.

“At ABM, we applaud this action dedicated toward advancing the adoption of crucial indoor air quality guidelines. As we continue to navigate the uncertainty of COVID-19, it’s imperative that effective strategies are implemented to better equip organizational leaders to reduce the spread of the virus, thereby creating healthier spaces for all,” said Josh Feinberg, ABM chief strategy officer.

“Keeping occupants safe through incorporating proper ventilation, mechanical and control systems, along with several new and advanced technologies for biohazard disinfection of the air is critically important. The COVID-19 pandemic thrust a spotlight on the essential responsibility of companies to address the wellbeing of people, and businesses across industries must prioritize improvements to their facilities to achieve proper risk assessment in real-time,” said Nancy M. McClellan, a member of ABM’s expert advisory council.
