Laboratory Decommissioning Services

Laboratory decommissioning ensures that former laboratory spaces are free of all hazardous materials prior to re-occupancy, thus reducing potential risk and liability. Decommissioning per the ANSI/AIHA (American National Standards Institute/American Industrial Hygiene Association) standard involves proper assessment, documentation and testing of the laboratory to verify that all potential issues have been fully addressed. EH&E’s decommissioning services are scaled to provide the specific level of support you need. Our services include:

  • Review of activities and procedures previously conducted in the space focusing on potential biological, chemical, physical and radiological hazards.
  • Inspection of ductwork associated with engineering controls and piping associated with lab sinks and floor drains.
  • Screening for residual contaminants on work surfaces.
  • Assistance with the development of appropriate environmental health and safety (EH&S) documentation including a written policy that meets the ANSI/AIHA standard, identification of roles and responsibilities, and checklists to confirm the space is properly decontaminated. 

EH&E’s decommissioning service helps insure that all potential hazards in a laboratory space that previously housed research operations are addressed. EH&E currently manages the EH&S programs for approximately 2M square feet of research laboratory space. As part of this responsibility, we have decommissioned laboratory spaces including biosafety level (BL) 1, BL2, and BL2+ practices and procedures.
