Indoor Air Quality

In recent years indoor air quality has become a concern as the desire to conserve energy has grown. It is now realized that in some cases, as energy conservation methods are increased, the amount of indoor air contaminants can rise to levels where human health and comfort becomes affected. In order to provide a safe working environment, employers must ensure proper and adequate ventilation for the office environment.

Pollutech's experience gained in the industrial hygiene and occupational health area has provided the team with the expertise to include indoor air quality assessments.
Indoor monitoring programs include, but are not limited to the following:
  • Physical air parameters including humidity, temperature and oxygen deficiency;
  • Gaseous sampling such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, ozone, formaldehyde;
  • Fibre sampling and identification;
  • Total and respirable dust sampling and particle identification;
  • Carbon dioxide as a ventilation indicator;
  • Multi-chemical analyses scanning close to 100 compounds for trace concentrations;
  • Indoor noise sampling;
  • Mould and bacteriological identification and counts.
Pollutech's professional interpretation of sampling data and its approach to problem solving have led to successful completion of a wide range of industrial projects.

On several occasions the monitoring team has been retained to conduct confidential Industrial Hygiene and Occupational Health surveys. This is extremely important where management/labour interactions must not be impaired. Many programs are carried out on an annual "audit" basis to ensure the integrity of existing plant programs. An immediate response for the sampling of critical events has been utilized by several industries to ensure worker safety.

Whether it be long-term planning, or short-term monitoring, Pollutech has the experience and can develop a program customized to the client's needs. The study is precise, and the results are confidential.
