Industrial Hygiene Program

EDUCATION

Landmark has been providing high-value industrial hygiene and Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) consulting services for higher education and public school facilities since our inception in 1999. Our professionals conscientiously work in the educational environment where student safety is paramount. We create value for our clients by balancing facility operations requirements with responsiveness to faculty considerations, regulatory requirements, and practical budget controls.

K-12

 

Landmark has extensive expertise in facility hazardous building materials survey and abatement projects and recognizes student/faculty schedule constraints and safety requirements. We focus closely on abatement alternatives to reduce costs and expedite the process and seek windows of opportunity for abatement, including Holiday Break, Spring Break, and weekends. We evaluate ways to sequence or phase projects, so priority areas are completed first. We recognize that educator and visitor relations are critical in minimizing disruption to operations and the successful management of expectations.

Landmark is highly experienced with projects conducted according to the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) for K-12 schools. A clear understanding of the practical application of AHERA requirements is critical to the successful implementation of school projects. We understand best procedures for determining and documenting asbestos, lead paint, mold and mercury-containing flooring sampling strategies, consistent usage of asbestos and lead hazard classifications, and air quality clearance requirements for abatement projects. 

Services include:

  • Asbestos and Hazardous Building Materials Surveys.

  • AHERA-Compliant Surveys and Reporting.

  • Abatement Design and Specifications.

  • Abatement Cost Estimation for Planning and Forecasting.

  • Abatement Contractor Bid Documents and Bidder Selection.

  • Indoor Air Quality Assessments.

  • Mercury Flooring Assessment and Remediation.

Landmark’s expertise goes far beyond typical hazardous building material support. We offer advisory and design services for building and laboratory safety, chemical exposure, hearing conservation, indoor air quality, and property condition assessments for old and malfunctioning major systems, such as central utility equipment and distribution and science research exhaust systems.
