Hazardous materials remain a widespread health risk within the building industry, not just in construction and demolition, but anywhere suspect biological or chemical materials may be present. Hazardous materials pose a danger to residents and workers if the appropriate controls are not put in place. 

Hazardous materials investigations establish the risk to human health for building users, provide evidence for appropriate remedial action, and provide reassurance to building managers and occupants that their environment is safe. Elements services ensure any contaminants found are safe or the appropriate controls are put in place to achieve compliance with safety regulations such as control of lead at work regulations and Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations. 

Element’s qualified occupational hygienists thoroughly assess areas with potentially hazardous materials, through various investigation techniques, and give professional advice on any remedial actions required to ensure that buildings are safe for re-occupancy and materials disposed safely. 

Depending on the nature of the hazardous materials, Element can employ a variety of services including:

Our hazardous materials investigation techniques follow ASTM E1792, ASTM E1728, and ASTM D6966 standards.
