Healthcare Industry Services

Hospitals and Medical Offices are under extreme pressure to provide a safe and sterile environment for patients in their care. Absolute Resource Associates helps many Healthcare Providers to provide and maintain a healthy environment through assessments, routine testing and other services.

Waste Anesthetic Gases (WAG) Testing

OSHA requires semi-annual testing for Waste Anesthetic Gases (WAG) in medical facilities. Absolute Resource Associates provides this testing service on a schedule which suits your needs. 

We use state of the art real-time direct reading FT-IR equipment in combination with passive sampling equipment for breathing zone exposures. This gives our professionals the ability to quickly identify leaks or source areas and assess OSHA compliance for Short Term Exposure Limit (STEL) and Threshold Limit Value (TLV) exceedances for a variety of anesthetics gases.

Our assessment includes a comprehensive report, complete with documentation of the areas and personnel tested.

Legionella Services

Legionella contamination in Healthcare Facilities is a very serious concern because many of the building occupants may be immunocompromised, elderly and/or more succeptible to infection. ARA can address your Legionella concerns quickly, effectively, and confidentially. For more infomation on Legionella, what it is, who is at risk and ARA's Legionella services, click here.

Indoor Air Quality testing

Medical facilities require special attention to indoor air quality as these facilities often are populated by immune compromised individuals.  Whether your concerns are bio-aerosols, ethylene oxide, or surface and air contamination, we will design an appropriate survey to suit your needs.

 

Our consultants can provide assistance with facility evaluations for health & safety, facility renovation planning, air quality management and materials testing to ensure appropriate air quality is maintained throughout a renovation project.
