The most difficult building scenarios are often related to occupant illness or discomfort. Our well-defined exposure risk assessments can help.
FACS Exposure Assessment and Control services include the anticipation, recognition, evaluation and control of occupant exposure to various agents. These agents can be chemical, biological or physical, and may include VOC’s, molds, or excessive noise.
Our experts review both occupational and non-occupational environments to identify and characterize exposures to agents relative to worker, occupant, and community health. Environmental compliance companies often call on FACS to perform inspections and provide reports.
We specify and evaluate exposure controls such as elimination, substitution, engineered systems, administrative procedures, and personal protective equipment in order to reduce exposure. FACS also provides industry perspective, specifications, and can assess the performance of existing control systems.
Examples of exposure assessment and control services that FACS provides are public health risk assessments, building condition assessments, building assessment services, occupational exposure monitoring, building assessment reports, and more.
