Walk-Through Survey

This survey is literally the field observers visual observations while walking through the subject property. The purpose of a walk-through survey is to recognize and identify potential health and safety hazards in the building/workplace. The information gathered should serve as a solid basis for the quantitative evaluation of health hazards and the design of their control measures. WHIS, LLC always recommends that a separate "Phase One Environmental Site Assessment" should be completed.


Phase One Environmental Site Assessment (Recommended but NOT offered by WHIS,LLC)

The assessment will typically include a site inspection, interviews, a review of published government lists of known contaminated sites and hazardous material users, evaluation of adjacent properties, review of topographic maps and aerial photos, review of current and past property usage, and a review of applicable documents.
