Infection Control

Protect Your Employees & Business with Infection Control Services

Commercial businesses often undergo construction activities, such as demolition and drilling, that generate harmful particulate matter and affect indoor air quality. These particulates pose a serious health risk to employees and customers, especially those with respiratory issues or weakened immune systems. To mitigate these risks, facility directors and prime contractors should work with subcontractors specialized in infection control. At Alliance Environmental, our trained technicians offer Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) services, identifying and remedying bacterial presence in HVAC systems and reducing the risk of infectious disease and legal claims. We also implement physical barriers and negative pressure to control particulate dispersion during construction activities, providing high-quality setup to ensure the safety of your employees and business.

Infection Control Risk Assessment

To mitigate these risks, facility directors and prime contractors should work with subcontractors specialized in infection control to implement appropriate measures. One such measure is the Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA), which involves assessing potential risks associated with construction activities and implementing measures to control those risks. Alliance Environmental’s technicians are trained to Identify and remedy bacterial presence in HVAC systems, preventing the spread of infectious disease and reducing the risk of legal claims.

Physical barriers and negative pressure are two important measures that can be taken to control particulate dispersion during construction activities. Physical barriers are designed to prevent the spread of particulate matter by separating the construction site from the rest of the building. Negative pressure, on the other hand, is used to create an inward flow of air from the construction site, preventing particulates from escaping into the surrounding areas. Both of these rely on an intelligent design, with high quality set up to endure construction activities.

Why Alliance Environmental?

At Alliance Environmental, we have extensive experience with infection control projects including constructing all types of containment barriers, monitoring negative air pressure and generating permits at all levels and types.

When implementing these measures, we use wipeable materials and ensure that the negative air machine filters are regularly maintained. We also employ exhaust strategies to remove particulates from the construction site and to prevent them from being circulated throughout the building.

In addition to these measures, it may be necessary to use phasing, controlled breaches, and interstitial containment to further reduce the risks associated with construction activities. As a specialist in infection control, Alliance Envorimental’s experts can provide guidance on these details and help ensure that all measures are properly implemented and enforced.

Alliance Environmental’s full-time safety officers/quality control team carefully inspect our work and ensure proper setup, including a technician that is Rescue and Assist Certified, Respirator Fit Tested/Certified, Dust Buster Certified and Fire Stopping Install Level 1.

Frequently Asked Questions

Infection control is the practice of preventing the spread of infectious diseases in commercial and public settings. It is important because it protects the health and safety of employees, customers, and the general public. Infection control measures can help prevent the spread of illnesses, such as COVID-19, and reduce the risk of legal claims.

An Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) is a process used to identify potential sources of infection and assess the risks associated with them. It is commonly used during construction activities to mitigate the spread of airborne pathogens and other hazards. The assessment is conducted by trained professionals who evaluate the site and recommend appropriate control measures.

To improve indoor air quality, you can take several measures, such as regularly cleaning and maintaining your HVAC system, using high-quality air filters, and ensuring proper ventilation. You may also want to consider hiring a professional service provider who can conduct air quality testing and recommend appropriate remediation measures.

Physical barriers are temporary structures that are used to contain dust and other particulates generated during construction activities. Negative pressure is a technique used to create an inward airflow, which helps prevent the spread of contaminants to other areas. When combined, physical barriers and negative pressure can help control particulate dispersion and protect the health and safety of workers and occupants.

Facility directors and prime contractors have a legal obligation to provide a safe and healthy workplace for employees and customers. Failure to implement adequate infection control measures can result in legal claims, such as workers’ compensation claims, lawsuits, or fines from regulatory agencies. It is important to work with qualified professionals who can help you understand and comply with relevant regulations and guidelines.
