We are committed to addressing a variety of environmental health and industrial hygiene needs in Chicago and across Illinois.
At Forensic Analytical Consulting Services, Inc., we’re committed to making the environment and workplace safer across the Chicagoland Area. We bring together environmental experts, scientists, field workers, and other support personnel together in order to serve the Chicago metropolitan area’s many public health interests. We have one mission: protecting public health, backed up by a commitment to our home.
Our teams are members of the communities they live in, so they have insight and investment in keeping the overall environment across Illinois safe. At our offices, we’re working constantly to address issues with environmental agents and other concerns.
We help clients across industries with management of maintenance emergencies (incidents) and restoration vendors when water, fire, biohazards, chemicals & COVID-19 issues affect your properties. Our emergency response program (FIRM) is proven to save our clients 20-30% per year in efficiency, cost savings, and productivity gains. We provide real-time data management services that are accessible from a dashboard built with our clients in mind.
Our team brings a unique perspective across all sites that we work in. Our qualified field experts and staff can respond to issues rapidly and appropriately. Our team of specialized industrial hygienists can help with indoor environmental testing, hazardous building materials (lead, asbestos, PCBs), mold & moisture, water management programs, expert testimony, wildfire/structure fire smoke assessments, healthcare environmental services, healthy building programs, IEQ investigations, coatings & corrosion control, emergency response, respirator fit testing, remediation support, and more.
Chicagoland has 9.4 million people living in it and spans 14 counties. It’s not just a heavily populated area either, it’s an industrial hub. The Chicago metropolitan area has more than six million full and part-time employees, who generate more than $689 billion/year. Naturally, our office is committed to maintaining industrial hygiene and safety in one of the US’ largest productive areas. But we don’t just care about industry and the economy. We’re Cubs, Bears, and Bulls fans, and you can find our employees around town eating at some of the most famous and best restaurants in the country. Our commitment to innovation and public health means you’ll probably find us at the Field Museum, too.
We're committed to Chicago.
FACS was founded on the principles of giving back and supporting our surrounding communities. In line with those principles, our founder, Dave Kahane, has a well-defined program for supporting employees who are passionate about causes that they believe in – Dave’s Direct Giving (or “D3”) – which provides ten $2,500 awards to various non-profits annually. This way of thinking is pervasive throughout the company, as our staff is given two paid days off per year to support causes that are dear to their hearts.
We work to protect public health and to create safe spaces for living, work, and play. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
