CIH Environmental Solutions conducts over 500 indoor air quality surveys each year. Assessments are conducted by rigorously trained personnel that ensure compliance with standards issued by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH).
The surveys are carried out in two forms, routine preventive care and reactive surveys. Both assessments use testing regimen from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) document, A Standardized EPA Protocol for Characterizing Indoor Air Quality in Large Office Buildings. Inspections sample common air pollutants like carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, and airborne particulates. Thermal comfort is also evaluated.
Having proper indoor air quality conditions helps meet OSHA, ACGIH, and World Health Organization (WHO) standards. Maintaining the air quality within acceptable federal, international, and industry guidelines also provides compliance with American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) standards. .
CIH provides training in Hazard communication to help ensure that the hazards of all chemicals, produced or imported, are evaluated and that information regarding their hazards is transmitted to employers and employees.
