The notion that U.S. employers would engage in broad-scale temperature screening of employees would have once been essentially unthinkable. But the realities of COVID-19 are changing the workplace, as least for the time being. With the encouragement of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and some state and local governments, and in light of the blessing of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”), more employers are now considering the implementation of daily temperature screeningbefore employees enter the workplace.

In the past week, we've received several inquiries about managing remote staff. As companies around the globe grapple to address coronavirus and the workplace, managers who have never led a distributed workforce before are facing the very real likelihood of an immediate crash-course in remote management.
Recent studies suggest that indoor air quality and productivity of employees are related factors and that healthy air quality directly contributes to the performance of staff. Understanding the relationship between the two topics will help employers improve both air quality and the health and performance of their employees.
At BizCare, we help you track the key factors that affect air quality: chemicals, dust, CO2, humidity, and temperature. The first on the list sounds a bit ambiguous--which “chemicals” are we even talking about? The chemicals in your air that we’re most interested in are commonly referred to as VOCs, and we have quite a bit to say about them.
It’s easy to assume the air in your office is safe and comfortable if your fire alarm and carbon monoxide monitor aren’t ringing. Unfortunately, if you want your office to be healthy for you and your family, you should start paying attention to other factors that could be affecting your air quality.

What is the Fine Dust
Did you know that fine dust is surprisingly very small? Fine dust particles can fit across the width of a strand of hair, which means it is invisible to the human eye. It is extremely dangerous as it can be breathed in, absorbed into the bloodstream and cause/ exacerbate major health issues like asthma and heart disease.
