Environmental Testing and Consulting

Keeping company properties safe for workers and customers alike is essential to a business’s success.

Responsible business executives know that regular environmental testing and consulting is important to keeping a business up to code and safe for employees to continue their work. Through environmental testing, companies can identify health hazards existent in their buildings and create plans of attack through remediation and removal of these hazards with the help of groups like Abacus Environmental.

Before a company can schedule and utilize the data collected from environmental testing, it’s important to understand what environmental testing is and how it can help a business succeed. Environmental testing is the process of taking samples from a building to test for contaminants and pollutants that could cause health issues for people who use the building. These samples can be taken from the soil, water, surfaces within a building, and even the air inside the building. Inspectors perform tests that identify the presence of environmental hazards like mold lead.

The data collected indicates the severity of contamination within a building and locates potential problem areas to help companies perform preventative measures against future contamination. By usin environmental testing and consulting, company owners and safety officers are able to get a full picture of the health of their properties and can prevent future epidemics of health issues. Widespread illness among employees can lead to expensive losses due to a reduction in productivity and frequent absences. If contamination is left unmanaged, companies can even face fines and reprimands from OSHA for failing to meet regulations. With the in-depth inspections provided by Airtek Environmental, companies can easily avoid these risks to profit and reputation.
