Decontamination of your facility should be considered multiple times throughout the life cycle — post-construction, before commissioning, during the use of the facility, as part of decommissioning and finally, before demolition.

Not all facilities are used for the same application. Therefore, an intimate knowledge of biological, chemical, radioactive, and physical requirements is imperative to ensure the correct procedures for cleaning and decontamination before or after construction or renovation handover.

Duty of care to staff and construction workers

For facilities that have been established for several years, current use may not reflect historical use. In these cases, it is essential to have your facility, HVAC, liquid waste systems and equipment adequately decontaminated before works are done, to ensure the safety of construction or renovation workers.

Facility Managers have a duty of care to ensure that their facilities are appropriately disinfected or decontaminated. An Occupational Hygienist is responsible for completing the appropriate pre and post decontamination tests.

Biosafety International provides decontamination, and occupational hygiene testing certificates post service. Our Department of Health trained technicians can disinfect and decontaminate facilities.
