Construction Risk Management & Monitoring

Healthcare facilities face unique risks during construction activities, but construction contractors are not always aware of healthcare’s special environment.

Construction contractors are often not aware of the unique needs that working with healthcare facilities requires. Failure to adhere to dust controls and other issues can not only cost your healthcare facility excessive time and money but also put the people who trust you at risk. The Joint Commission’s Environment of Care Standard (EC.02.06.05) states the following: “When planning for demolition, construction, renovation, or general maintenance, the hospital conducts a pre-construction risk assessment for air quality requirements, infection control, utility requirements, noise, vibration, and other hazards that affect care, treatment, and services.”

FACS experts know exactly how to conduct the pre-construction risk assessment (PRCA) to keep your facility in compliance with applicable regulations.

Legionella outbreaks, indoor environment quality issues, infectious disease control, hazardous building material exposure, and regulatory problems at healthcare facilities happen much too frequently, and those mishaps are often preventable. FACS experts work on your behalf to protect your facility, your staff, and the patients who depend on you to provide a safe environment during construction activities.

Case Study

Hospital Construction Project Requires Environmental Monitoring

A hospital construction project required cutting through the exterior walls of the existing structure to tie-in to a new building being erected adjacent to it. FACS was retained to assist with evaluating the project impact on the environment of care, which included monitoring concentrations of airborne particulate matter (PM 10 and PM 2.5).
