Comfort en gezondheid - Sick Building Syndrome

Are dust content, ventilation, thermal comfort, relative humidity or air currents causing health problems? Or are the health problems being caused by the microbiological quality of the air (fungi and bacteria), legionella bacteria or volatile organic compounds?

With our expertise, we can provide the best possible advice concerning the measurements to be carried out in order to determine whether the health problems complained of are well founded.

The quality of the air and the welfare are issues about which an increasing number of questions are being raised. In order to find most objective answer to this, Vinçotte has developed a measurement program that tackles the main health problems relating to Sick Building Syndrome.

Our service proposes measures depending on the health problems involved. We advise you on how to resolve the problem/s or simply how you can improve the situation. Our collaboration with specialised laboratories (the Scientific Institute of Public Health and the Scientific and Technical Centre for the Construction Industry), places us in a position to improve our services to you even further.

With this service, you will improve the safety of your working environment and the welfare of your personnel.
