Measurement Methods for Human Health

This working group will identify research and techniques used to measure the impact of building design and operations on occupant health and well-being. The expanding use of measurement technologies, including both wearable devices and environmental sensing devices, provides new ways of assessing environmental exposures in buildings. The group will identify methods that are used to measure the impact of the built environment on occupant health including sensing technologies, behavioral observations, physiological measures, archival records, surveys, photography and videography as a resource for engineering and facilities professionals.
