Indoor Environmental Quality
SGS indoor environmental quality specialists can carry out a working conditions inspection to ensure the health and improve the productivity of your teams. Call us today to find out more.
Your facilities should be reviewed periodically to ensure that the amounts of noise, air and water pollution are at minimum levels to minimise any harmful effects on your personnel. Good indoor environmental management makes sense but it can also be profitable: avoiding ‘sick building syndrome’ will reduce absentees and ensure continuous occupation of your facilities.
Our accredited indoor environmental quality teams examine your facilities for the factors that can cause discomfort or disease in your workforce and visitors to your site. Health problems can be caused by inadequate air quality, bacteria and micro-organisms, chemical contaminants, poor ventilation, problems with temperature and humidity, excessive noise and inadequate lighting. We can work with you to assess your needs and develop solutions to ensure a clean indoor environment to protect your business.
Our work in this field is the most advanced in the world. Our teams consist of accredited experts, hygienists, industrial architects, microbiologists and engineers specialising in air conditioning. Our environmental expertise has been used to improve administrative, public and private buildings, shopping and leisure centres, restaurants, hospitals, hotels, schools and research centres.
Our services include:
- Inspecting heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems
- Determining indoor pollutants such as airborne micro-organisms, particulate matter and volatile organic compounds
- Researching hygienic, microbiological and chemical factors
- Examining noise and electromagnetic fields
- Determining light intensity
- Assessing the risk of asbestos and other hazardous substances
- Controlling water quality in air conditioners, cooling and storage facilities, including checking for legionella
- Optimising energy use in your buildings
Following years of experience working with government departments and regulatory bodies worldwide, we developed a special software tool that allows us to assess your premises quickly and easily. The tool displays our analysis using a colour-coded scoring system so you can see at a glance where action is needed, allowing you to prioritise and plan for future improvements.
As well as maintenance for your site, we can also start at the planning stage and offer advice for the design of new constructions so that cooling and heating installations maximise the quality of the indoor environment.
Our certificate of indoor environmental quality is proof to your staff and stakeholders that your facility has met necessary regulatory requirements. Contact our indoor environmental quality experts today.
