INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is a high profile issue that affects million of workers around the world. The World Health Organization estimates that as many as 30% of new and remodeled buildings world wide can be classified as “problem buildings” – where productivity is impaired by poor IAQ
Many issues can affect building air quality – volatile organic compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde, particulate matter, mold and moisture intrusion, even poor ventilation. These issues often find their way into the courtroom and property owners, occupants, attorneys lenders are all drawn into the equation.

IN NEED OF OUR SERVICES?
After Hurricane Matthew, the Edgecombe County Courthouse needed immediate assistance and quick guidance following a storm sewer backup in their building. Because the courthouse serves a large community and has a lot of people working inside it, air quality was a large
concern. Once I called EI, they were quick to respond to the job site, had little to no lead time and were able to not only take initial samples prior to the project beginning, but also share results in a day to ease the client’s mind on SERVPRO’s processes. I cannot say enough good things about EI, their quick response and guidance throughout the project was key in my success for restoring the Edgecombe County Courthouse “Like it Never Even Happened.”
On April 10, 2020, OSHA issued a memorandum which relaxed the rules for recording cases of COVID-19 on the OSHA 300. EI first reported on this topic back on April 15, 2020. More recently, OSHA issued another memorandum intended to provide guidance for compliance officers, rescinding those earlier restrictions and returning to standard recordkeeping practices for all employers as of May 26, 2020.
