Indoor Air Quality Testing (IAQ)

ss norisle.jpeg 2Canadians generally spend over 90% of their time indoors.  Poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can affect our health, reduce our productivity, and impact building reputation. In industrial, commercial and institutional settings, providing a safe and comfortable workplace with good air quality is an employer’s responsibility dictated by provincial and federal occupational health and safety regulations.

 

 

 

DST conducts IAQ assessments for employers, building occupants, property managers, and building designers. IAQ can become a concern if:

  • Building mechanical systems are not operating properly
  • Hazardous materials are used in or near a workplace
  • An event affecting the integrity of a building, such as a flood or fire, takes place

An IAQ assessment can also be performed to ensure buildings are being operated and maintained within the parameters of building management contracts. DST works closely with clients to ensure each assessment program is tailored to suit the needs of the client.

Under the direction of our Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH), DST is qualified to handle any IAQ concern, and can develop an Indoor Air Quality assessment to meet your unique needs.
