Reducing levels of viruses, bacteria and mold can improve absenteeism

"The health of our employees is very important to us. Absenteeism is a huge cost to employers."

American Green Technology's Health Risk Management System is an air treatment solution that may be an ideal alternative for combating sick building syndrome. ADS Security, L.P., the 21st largest electronic security company in the nation supplies electronic security for businesses, industrial facilities and residences in the southeastern United States. This award winning organization headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee prides itself on providing an environment for employees to thrive, be creative, productive and now healthier than ever.

ADS Security (ADS) operates a UL-listed, CSAA Five Diamond Monitoring Center and in 2014, ADS Security was named the Dealer of the Year by SDM magazine. With a certified, experienced and dedicated team of professionals operating 24/7, 365 days a year, ADS has one of the highest ranking UL-listed Monitoring Centers in the industry.

ADS has installed several Health Risk Management System (HRMS) units manufactured by American Green Technology® (AGT) in the monitoring call center in the Nashville headquarters to see how effective the systems are at improving indoor air quality while reducing absenteeism. This innovative product is uniquely configured as standard ceiling lighting, but is engineered with a UV-C air disinfection system that reduces the amount of viruses, bacteria and mold carried in the air. Reducing the germs that travel on air currents in crowded office spaces can lower the risk of co-workers passing germs to one another.

“We decided to install the HRMS units in our monitoring center first because those employees work in close proximity to one another and share equipment and desks, so we felt it would give us more accurate assessment of the effectiveness of the systems,” said Scott Lickteig, Director of Monitoring, ADS. “The health of our employees is very important to us and knowing that this system can help reduce the spread of influenza and keep our staff healthy made this an easy decision. Absenteeism is a huge cost to employers.”

Mike Hedge, of Competitive Edge Services, the exclusive distributor of the HRMS in Tennessee, thinks utilizing the HRMS for ADS Security is a perfect application. “Protecting the health of employees should be priority one for a business and I applaud ADS for investing in the HRMS. The largest single cost to businesses are salaries. They need to protect those assets by providing the healthiest work environment they can.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) productivity losses linked to absenteeism cost employers $225.8 billion annually; that averages $1,685 per employee. In fact, people going to work when they are sick accounts for 2/3 of the total cost of worker illness.
