How does air purifiers affect the level of sick absence for children in municipal preschools?
During autumn 2018 Albion Nordic AB has placed air purifiers at Enögla preschool in the municipality of Enköping. The test took place between August 27 and November 30, 2018. In the test Albion Nordic AB equipped half of the preschool wards with air purifiers. Then they compared the amount of days that the children were sick and stayed at home between the wards with air purifiers and the ones without.
The purpose of the test was to investigate whether air purifiers can reduce sick leave. The test was sanctioned by Enköpings municipality.
