Occupational Exposure Limit Testing is a testing measure conducted to protect employees, employers and ensure that your company is comlpiant with Ministry of Labour requirements. In some circumstances, personal sampling (most commonly conducted for airborne particulates and dust) may be performed in an office or warehouse environment where one employee may be experiencing symptoms or concerns. We can design a testing plan to match your specific needs and help protect your workers from exposure to hazardous pollutants.
Has your workplace or commercial property experienced a flood, sewage backup or fire? We can test for microbiological, bacterial and combustion by-products that may be present in your air. Our health first approach will ensure that your building and its occupants are kept safe from harmful contaminants. We can also ensure that post-disaster clean up efforts have been appropriately managed and that your facility has been effectively restored to a healthy state.
Purchasing a commercial building or entering into a lease agreement requires a large capital commitment. Protect your investment with a professional commercial air quality test. If the building you are looking to purchase or lease has indoor air pollutants then we can help save you from making a $10,000 + mistake. A building with clean air is a far more productive work environment than one without.
On March 31, 2004 an amendment to the Criminal Code of Canada came into effect under Bill C-45 (Health & Safety Negligence) that states any employer can be held criminally liable for not investigating the status of indoor air quality within the workplace. This can result in criminal charges against the corporations directors, the organization, or the sole proprietor of the business.
In short, by not investigating air quality complaints by employees, the employer is exposed to liability and would now be considered negligent in their duty to provide a safe work environment.
