Environmental, Health and Safety Support Services

University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth

The University of Massachusetts – Dartmouth contracted Mabbett to provide technical support to assist and augment the University environmental, health and safety (EH&S) staff.  Under this contract, Mabbett has received multiple task orders to provide a variety of environmental consulting and industrial hygiene services to the University. 

As part of this effort, Mabbett has worked with the facilities and public safety staff to survey the campus to locate and identify permit confined spaces. Mabbett prepared a draft Confined Space Entry policy for the University and provided staff with Confined Space Entry training. Mabbett also conducted two rounds of emergency mold testing in response to water damage that resulted during a renovation project. Mabbett responded after hours to sample and assess the impacted areas to screen for microbial contaminants and to assess for potential threats to indoor air quality. This information was used by the University to address and resolve faculty and student concerns and re-open the work space. The field sampling was performed by credentialed personnel working under the direction of a Certified Industrial Hygienist. The Mabbett Team worked closely with the University Facilities and Engineering, and Public Safety staff to minimize impacts on students, staff and site operations. All samples were collected in accordance with applicable state and Federal regulations and standards. This project has required extensive data collection, evaluation, and QA/QC.
