Indoor Air Quality
We all know it is there, and at times occupants are unhappy with it, but more often than not we can not really qualify whether our indoor air quality is good, bad or indifferent.
At Assurity Consulting, we can - and across a range of areas in your buildings. Aspects such as dust and microbiological contaminants together with the impact of various groups of gases affect air quality, all of which are influenced by the standards of cleanliness and maintenance of your ventilation systems.
Compliance with COSHH, Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) and DSE Regulations are just some of the other considerations too, that have a bearing on how good your indoor air quality really is.
For example many people believe air quality is just a matter of filter changes, if only it were that simple. We find that as many problems can arise from the too frequent changing of filters as well as not frequently enough – both in their own way potentially expensive exercises.
Our consultancy team include chemists, microbiologists and laboratory scientists with decades of experience in indoor air quality management. We take tens of thousands of measurements every year, as well as process all our own site samples – around another 35,000 a year. Combine this with a detailed understanding of your buildings’ systems and services and you have credible and verifiable information on the characteristics of your indoor air quality.
You can use our independent indoor air quality assessments to cover:
- Ventilation systems and air quality requirements
- Air handling units
- Air quality legislation
- Air quality control factors
- Risks associated with mechanically ventilated buildings, and even
- Manage indoor air quality issues effectively.
With an industry leading ISO 17025 system that covers site sampling, transportation and testing of our air samples and a UKAS accredited in house laboratory, you have the reassurance that your results will be totally accurate.
Our consultants can also advise you on the use of our online compliance management solution “Assurity Plus” to view real time progress of your allocated actions, simplify the way you work, demonstrate greater compliance control, have useable management reporting and enhanced visibility of risks.
