The Problem
JTA Health, Safety, & Noise Specialists were engaged to identify an effective safety strategy for the Shelford Girls Grammar School Early Learning Centre. This included a check on indoor air quality, including the potential for hidden mould growth.

The solution
One of JTA’s OHS consultants visited the site, assessed all policies, procedures and systems relating to safety and conducted an OHS compliance audit. This audit was thorough and exact, taking into account all relevant legislation.

How JTA Solved the Problem

JTA carried out a detailed investigation using a thermal imaging camera, moisture meter and bio-pump to collect air samples
To ensure peace of mind, JTA delivered a tailored 1 hour Q & A on water damage and mould awareness
A detailed moisture map was prepared by JTA and provided to the builders to ensure only the areas affected by mould growth were being replaced. This saved Shelford Girls Grammar School on unnecessary building costs
With JTA’s in-depth and collaborative approach, we developed a thorough understanding of the issues affecting the Shelford Girls Grammar School so that safety could be pro-actively addressed

Project Benefits to the Business

Reduced legal risk and protection of students and staff members from mould and other airborne pathogens
Minimised maintenance costs by conducting a thorough investigation with the latest monitoring equipment
Peace of mind for parents and teachers in respect to the children’s safety
Greater understanding of the health risks associated with mould growth
