Ernahrung | Year: 2013

In Austria and other EU-countries each year foodborne diseases are reported. It can be assumed, according to the outcome of outbreak-statistics and international studies that hygiene recommendations in domestic households are observed insufficiently. This study was designed as a combination of methods of quantitative and qualitative research approaches. On one hand the actual behavior in food handling should be observed in real conditions to see possible causes of food-borne illness. On the other hand a representative questionnaire should provide information about knowledge and awareness of food safety. The results indicate deficits and low levels of microbiological knowledge in the population.

Gefahrstoffe Reinhaltung der Luft | Year: 2014

In new buildings with tight building envelopes different systems of mechanical ventilation by a heat recovery ventilator are often used. However, many builders are still sceptical to what extent these innovative systems might lead to risks for occupants. The study, which is reported here, included indoor air pollution measurements (e.g. formaldehyde, volatile organic compounds and allergens) both in mechanically ventilated houses and in naturally ventilated homes as well as a medical survey among the occupants of these homes in order to determine the air pollution levels, the relationship between indoor air pollution and occupants' health and the changes during the period of one year period in these two different types of homes.
