Healthy Building Verified for:

Moraine Valley Community College has engaged the Healthy Building Institute (HBI) to implement its Healthy Building Verification (HBV) Program. The HBV Program provides a high-level 3rd party review of the facility’s operations as they relate to Indoor Air Quality, Drinking Water Quality and Contact Surface Hygiene. The program is implemented by an expert team of Certified Industrial Hygienists, Certified Safety Professionals, Microbiologists, LEED APs, and Environmental and Mechanical Engineering Professionals.
The current scope of the HBI - Healthy Building Verification Program includes:
Comprehensive Indoor Air Quality Testing and facility review to verify adherence to guidance established by nationally recognized health and safety agencies/entities that include EPA, OSHA and ASHRAE.
Water Testing of Potable drinking water supplies to verify safe and healthy water quality is being provided per EPA and IDPH drinking water quality standards.
HVAC mechanical system inspection and operations guidance to verify the HVAC system within this facility is properly filtered, maintained, and operating to provide healthy indoor air quality per ASHRAE and EPA.
Facility cleaning and disinfection review to verify that this facility’s daily cleaning and disinfection practices are in adherence to the guidance from OSHA, EPA, and CDC to properly maintain safe and healthy contact surface hygiene within the facility.
Implementation of an Indoor Environmental Management Plan that provides direction and resources to rapidly respond to potential Indoor Environmental Health and Safety problems so they can be addressed early on with well documented scientific supported solutions.
Moraine Valley Community College is committed to working with HBI to support healthy and safe indoor environments. Updates will be provided as the HBI - Healthy Building Verification Program is completed for this facility.
