Demolition Projects & Air Quality Concerns Discussed in New Video
The IAQ Video Network releases another educational production about important environmental, health & safety (EHS) issues.
In most circumstances, much of the waste created by tearing down an old or damaged building is inert or nonhazardous. However, other debris may contain hazardous waste that may be regulated by the state and federal government. This waste, and the demolition process itself, can in some circumstances create exposure concerns for the project workers and nearby residents.
“Demolition projects often create a large amount of particulate matter that can spread to the surrounding community,” said Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network. “Depending on the age and type of building being demolished, it may contain asbestos, lead, mold, PCBs, mercury and other materials that could create exposure concerns. We hope this new video helps to shed some light on potential air quality issues that can be caused by demolition projects for workers and the general public.”
This educational video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that work to protect the public’s health. Sponsors include: EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Clark Seif Clark, Zimmetry Environmental, Indoor Environmental Consultants, Hudson Douglas Public Adjusters and Healthy Indoors Magazine to name just a few.
