There is not a specific test for the air quality in an office, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Employers can check the temperature, humidity and air flow in the space to make sure they are at comfortable levels.
Other actions employers take to ensure air quality include inspecting and testing ventilation systems, furnaces and air conditioning units for potential problems, reports the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. A walk through the building reveals unpleasant odors along with signs of water damage, pest infestations and leaks that affect air quality. Leaks and water damage require immediate action for improved air quality.
