An assessment of indoor air quality, lost work time, and perceived air quality in a Winnipeg school division

Swail, Heather 07 February 2014 (has links)
Indoor air quality measurements and staff absentee data were collected from elementary schools in a Winnipeg school division. Data was collected measuring carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, temperature, relative humidity, particulate matter, and in some schools, radon. It was found that nearly all schools were experiencing some measure of IAQ problems. The most common issues measured were low levels of relative humidity and high concentrations of carbon dioxide. No significant relationships between staff absenteeism and IAQ parameters were identified in Pearson product-moment correlations and multiple regression analyses. Survey results found that 96% of respondents found IAQ problems in the workplace, and 79% of respondents show ‘sick building syndrome’-like symptoms. Recommendations have been provided to improve IAQ and establish an IAQ management program in order to improve the indoor environment in the school division.

CSR Implementation and Outcomes: The Environmental Concern : The Case of Axfood (Sweden)

Bashir, Imran, Shah, Muhammad Sabir January 2013 (has links)
The  study  is  about  the  implementation  of  environmental  conscious  approach  of corporatesocial responsibility in the Food wholesale and retail business. The environmental approach includes  eco  friendly  packaging,  organised  logistics  and  practices  of  energy  conservation. The case studied is Axfood through the investigation of their public reports, observation at stores  and  interview  with  the  store  managers  and  the  Head  of  Corporate  Social Responsibility. The methodology used in the research project is case study methodology during which data from  various  sources has  been  used  and  analysed  for  information  richness  and  going  deep down into the matter for investigation the patterns of environmental concern at Axfood. The empirical exposure gained through observations, repeated store investigation, interviews of customers and store managers and having five interview sessions with Asa Domeij (Head of the Environmental matters at Axfood) had formed the result in three learning points. One,the practice of having competition on cheap and quality products on the basis of re-injected revenue and expenses control through recycling and energy conservation is successful. Two, market pressure on companies to focus only on the products that pushes them to neglect the social  audits  followed  by  ambiguous  reports  is  not  a  sustainable  solution.  Lastly,  learning from  competitors,  attaining  point  of  parity  through  having  what  others  have  with  some uniqueness  that others  lack  is  in  terms  of  superior  environmental  consciousness  is  the solution  for  future  business  (recent  digital  loyalty  programme  of  Willys).

Improvement of operator's environment in excavator

Håkansson, Jon January 2004 (has links)
According to the report Ergonomic on-Site Assessment of Excavator Work, one big problem is the risk of falling accidents when entering and exiting the cab. The solution could be lowering the cab to the ground in front of the machine, this could also help during cleaning of windows. The mechanism needed for this operation could also be used for adjusting the cabin in height and tilting it, in order to solve the problem with neck and back injuries. In Umeå I had a meeting with professor Ivan Westerlund at SLU (Swedish Agricultural University) who taught me about ways to reduce vibrations by different undercarriages. It would be possible to have a principle similar to the terrain vehicles and tanks produced by Hägglunds. They are equipped with an active suspension system, making it possible to drive in high speed with track-undercarriage. By using this techniqe it would be possible to merge the two different excavators into one, a stable machine while working and a comfortable fast machine during transport. A fuelcell powerplant would be well suited, considering sound level and pollution in urban environment and especially underground worksituations. With less need for maintenance the risk for falling accidents gets minimized. As a bonus, maybe the waste water could be used for spraying, to avoid dust when needed. Today´s underground-operating machines are tied up with a waterhose which affects the mobility to a high level. Since i want to concentrate on a flexible machine adapted for roadtransport, my benchmark is the Volvo EW 180, their biggest wheeled excavator, produced today.

An examination of the customer service and distribution business unit's environmental compliance management process at Manitoba Hydro

Rezai, Fatemeh 24 September 2012 (has links)
Abstract Environmental compliance is defined as conformance with the requirements of environmental laws, regulations, industry and organizational codes of practice and standards. As a step towards a more in-depth study of environmental compliance, the present research was undertaken to examine the process of environmental compliance management in one of the Business Units at Manitoba Hydro. Research methods for this research included semi-structured interviews, observation, and document review. The research broadly concludes that the environmental compliance management process in the Customer Service and Distribution Business Unit follows the compliance process PDCA system and has the structural, functional and continuous improvement elements of the compliance framework presented in this research. However, given Manitoba Hydro’s commitment to meet or surpass the regulatory requirements and the Customer Service and Distribution Business Unit’s mandate to comply with all government and regulatory mandated requirements, the compliance management process in the Customer Service and Distribution Business Unit may benefit from a systematic and uniform monitoring process for compliance and performance as well as a uniform document to demonstrate compliance.

Constructing space: experiments in light

Gleave , Michaela Ruth, Art, College of Fine Arts, UNSW January 2007 (has links)
The research undertaken during this project has resulted in an investigation of atmospheric phenomena within constructed space, using light, space and water as primary materials to explore the peripheries of human perception. The project examines the extremities of human sensory experience as a means of navigating and further understanding the finite nature of our experience of 'reality'. We construct and apprehend a cohesive idea of our surroundings based on the information given to us by the senses, which are inherently limited in their capabilities. This thesis explores ways of deconstructing the processes involved in the creation of our contemporary understanding of reality, physiologically via the senses and externally through the active and conscious construction of our surroundings. The illusive and intangible nature of atmospheric phenomena is utilised in the practical component of this project for its ability to remain perceptually just out of reach; the distances in the sky cannot be judged, the air around us cannot be felt, and water in its forms of cloud, mist, ice, rain and snow hovers around the perimeters of materiality. In isolating phenomena such as these within fabricated environments the project aims to bridge the conceptual gap that exists between the highly constructed nature of our increasingly urbanised existence and the natural world.
