Safety and Hazardous
Materials Consulting

Hazardous building materials may be hiding in unexpected areas. Midwest Environmental Consulting Services, Inc. (MEC) can identify any potentially dangerous substances to keep industry employees safe or to plan for your next renovation or construction project.

Our hazmat consulting services address potential health threats found within and around commercial and industrial properties. We partner with public and private sector clients to work towards the reduction of hazards such as chemical exposure and hazardous material handling.

We provide personalized help to minimize your company’s interventions and litigation resulting from hazardous materials compliance issues. At MEC, our goal is to provide cost-effective solutions and safely integrating within the client’s operations.

Services start by conducting an assessment to raise awareness of hazards that may not be readily apparent. We recognize, evaluate, and recommend control measures for all potential hazards. Working as a team, we help our clients plan, develop, and implement customized programs that assure compliance and minimize risk.

All samples are examined by a licensed analyst from an independent third-party laboratory which is accredited by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and takes part in the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP).
