Validation and verification checks

Why is indoor air quality (IAQ) important?

All workplaces need an adequate supply of fresh, clean air.  It’s essential for a comfortable environment, in which staff are able to work productively and safely.  Without it, productivity goes down, sick days go up, and your bottom line suffers.

You may have the systems in place to ensure good indoor air quality (IAQ), but changing needs may mean that these need to be re-evaluated, in which case a validation and verification check (also known as a sick building/indoor air quality test) is required.

A validation and verification check of your existing system from gives you peace of mind.  It is your responsibility to ensure that you provide a safe and healthy environment for your workforce.  Bringing in Rock Compliance’s experienced engineers helps to ensure that you meet that responsibility.

Existing System Validation and Verification Checks Sick Building Indoor Air Quality Test
What is involved in a validation and verification check?

A building services validation is an inspection of plant and installations to assess three main criteria:

  • Physical condition
  • Compliance
  • Capacity

It includes taking readings and recording comprehensive data on all existing mechanical, electrical and controls systems to create thorough documentation in the form of a validation report.  This allows engineers to give advice on what remedial work is needed to bring your installation or building up to standard.

Compliance reporting is particularly important if you are considering occupying a space where existing building services are to be retained or altered to suit a new layout or level of occupation. By identifying any areas of potential non-compliance early on, remedial works can be included in refurbishment contracts.
