Exposure Assessment & Control

The most difficult building scenarios are often related to occupant illness or discomfort. Our well-defined exposure 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. 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.
