Our experts conduct environmental examinations designed to help understand matters such as environmental regulations, risk assessments and liability. With wide-ranging expertise, we can assess your cases such as:
Asbestos fibers can be released into the air during product use, demolition work, home renovations, repair, and remodeling. Generally, exposure occurs when the asbestos-containing material is disturbed or damaged in some way, allowing the release of asbestos particles and fibers into the air.
All houses built before 1978 are likely to contain lead-based paint. The deterioration of this paint results in elevated levels of lead-contaminated dust which can be inhaled or ingested. Continued exposure can result in lead poisoning and can cause serious health issues.
Harmful bacteria, parasites, and viruses are invisible to the naked eye, so water which looks and tastes good may not necessarily be safe to drink. These microbes can exist in surface and groundwater supplies, and can cause immediate sickness in humans if not properly treated.
Industrial hygiene is the science of protecting and enhancing the health and safety of people at work and in their communities. Health and safety hazards cover a wide range of chemical, physical, biological and ergonomic stressors
Soil & Sediment Testing
Soil testing is an important diagnostic tool for environmental assessments.
Indoor Air Quality And Mold
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the air quality within and around buildings and structures. IAQ is known to affect the health, comfort and well-being of building occupants.IAQ can be affected by gases (including carbon monoxide, radon, volatile organic compounds), particulates, microbial contaminants (mold, bacteria), or any mass or energy stressor that can induce adverse health conditions.
Tank Inspection and Repair Requirements
Hydrostatic testing is a process used to inspect equipment such as fire extinguishing cylinders, storage tanks, gas cylinders and chemical pipelines, through use of a hydrostatic tester. The equipment is examined for leaks, and the overall integrity of the units are assessed.
