TRAC's Commitment to Safety for Residents/Staff in Occupied Settings

Published

A clean worksite is very important not only for the safety of the work force on the job but also to the quality of health of the residents living and working in the space.  Very often, TRAC completes projects in occupied settings and with that comes extra precautions that need to be taken into account regarding the operations of the business and its inhabitants.  With our experience in highly technical hospital and other occupied construction settings, TRAC Builders often uses the Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) Matrix of Precautions for Construction and Renovation on its projects. 

Given the sensitive nature of many of the clients we are serving, TRAC finds it incredibly important to implement the same strategy taken on by hospitals to control infection control to other occupied spaces.  In addition to the ICRA Matrix taking into account all possible infection concerns, we use Negative Pressure Ventilation Construction Systems to ensure that the work being done is contained.  These units allow us to clean and control the air in the work area without contaminating other areas.  They also help remove any infectious airborne pathogens and purify the air to create a protective environment for your clientele.  The purpose of these two systems is to clearly define where precautions can be taken creating better cleaning practices, air quality, and reduce the risk to how it affects the residents and staff population.
