June is National Safety Month. There couldn’t be a more critical time for our communities, employees, and society as a whole to be safe. California has officially reopened, and in some instances, it would be 15 months since businesses have started operation once again.
In this issue of our newsletter, our focus is on employees safely returning to the office. Asbestos and mold are two serious environmental concerns that could affect employee’s health and welfare. The next topic we address is the need to stop the spread of Covid in hospitals. Even though California has seen a tremendous decline, some states in the U.S. and internationally are experiencing surges. Following that, we look at what property managers, employers, and facility managers could do to improve the situation. June is also National Homeownership month, and we look at home improvement from an indoor air quality perspective and how this can assist when you are buying or selling your home. The Mintie Corporation was recently acknowledged through the efforts of a gracious donation to a hospital in need. We take a closer look at this philanthropic effort. To end with, we focus on the need for healthcare facilities and medical office buildings to have fire dampers surveyed and inspected. Fires are always a concern, and in facilities exposed to gases and chemicals, these are more prevalent.
On a final note, we would like to wish all dads a very Happy Father’s Day. Since people are traveling and returning close to their pre-pandemic lives, we can enjoy the weekend with loved ones once again.
