Ensuring the welfare of people in the workplace is an important consideration for many North American organizations, as is adhering to environmental safety standards and regulations. Maxxam is able to provide analytical and technical industrial hygiene support to industrial hygienists performing occupational hygiene and indoor air quality assessments, compressed breathing air testing, bulk asbestos identification, and a variety of specialized analyses in support of environmental air sampling projects.
Air Quality Assessment
Airborne contaminants in the workplace are a major contributor to a variety of health conditions.
Bulk Materials Testing
Maxxam provides rapid and accurate identification of most bulk insulating and building materials for the presence of asbestos as well as UFFI, lead and other harmful components.
Compressed Breathing Air Analysis
Maxxam is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) to perform compressed breathing gas purity analysis.
Mould Speciation and Identification
Maxxam’s microbiology department specialises in mould speciation. In addition to providing traditional viable air analysis using agar media, Maxxam can provide non-viable spore trap analysis for airborne mould, which is also suitable for capturing pollen, insect parts, skin fragments, fibres and inorganic particulates.
