Chemical Exposure and Contamination Assessments

Whether you are in your workplace or your home, the potential exists for chemical contamination to be present.  AGW can assist you in evaluating your built environment to determine if there is a potential for chemical exposure where you work or live.  Many regulatory agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) address chemical exposure and contamination.  Environmental contaminants such as radon are naturally occurring, and may pose a risk to occupants of homes, schools, or commercial properties if radon levels are significantly elevated. 

Some contaminants, such as methamphetamine and other illicit drugs, are introduced into the built environment by the occupants.  Many industrial operations produce surface contaminants, including lead, arsenic, and other heavy metals.  All of these chemicals may impact the health of occupants, and AGW is available to conduct air sampling, surface sampling, and survey activities to identify chemical contamination.  Following chemical identification/preliminary assessment, AGW is available to assist you with development of mitigation plans, mitigation project management, post-mitigation confirmation sampling, and production of reports/documentation to provide you with the assurance you need that the contamination was properly handled.
