Recognize the health hazards caused by harmful substances

Our high-quality analyses help to identify and discover harmful and hazardous substances in building materials. Our reliable analyses also provide a foundation for successful asbestos or other demolition work.

Building-related health is regulated, for instance, in the Occupational Safety and Health Act and the Decree on Housing Health, as well as in the renewed asbestos legislation that became effective in 2016.

Our analyses help you to ensure that the conditions meet all the legal requirements.
