Title Standardization aspects of thermal comfort in office areas
Original title Komfort termiczny w pomieszczeniach biurowych w aspekcie norm [in Polish]
Bibliographic information June 2007, No.6 (429), p.16-19. 11 ref.
Abstract It is known that providing thermal comfort to employees by means of adjustment and control of the relevant environmental parameters results in a decrease in the number of errors and accidents, and an increase in productivity and quality of products and services. According to a report published by the European Agency for the Safety and Health at Work, thermal discomfort is an important physical risk factor in the work environment. The possibilities of analysing the thermal comfort in the work environment according to various Polish and European standards are discussed, together with the design of buildings while taking into account thermal comfort criteria.
