Environmental, Health, Safety, and Quality Management Services for Business and Industry, and Federal, State, and Local Government.

 

EHS Services, Inc. provides Environmental Health Services that are designed to answer a question, isolate or identify problems, or to assist in formulating a more efficient and cost-effective way of doing business.

Indoor Air Quality

The Environmental Protection Agency has identified indoor air quality as one of the top five risks to public health. Regardless of where you work or live, you may experience headaches, dry cough, dry or itchy skin, dizziness or nausea, lethargy or fatigue, or even illnesses or diseases that may be a result of the indoor environment. These symptoms, and more serious illnesses, may be caused by temperature or relative humidity imbalances, high levels of carbon dioxide, dust, bacteria, mold spores, or chemicals that are commonly found in building products and office furniture.

If you are going to undertake an indoor air quality assessment, you deserve to know the benefits. Consider the following:

bulleta reduction in symptoms experienced and illnesses contracted by persons working or living in the building
bulleta reduction in lost staff workdays due to indoor air-related illnesses or symptoms
bulletenhancement of staff morale, motivation, and productivity as a result of managementís commitment to maintain a healthy indoor environment

EHS personnel have the technical expertise and the specialized equipment to evaluate the most complex problems. Depending on the nature of the problem we will complete some or all of the following tasks when conducting indoor air quality investigations:

bulletTesting microbiological constituents
bulletTesting for chemical contaminants, including volatile organic compounds
bulletTesting for pesticides
