UL Verified Healthy Building
Did you know that Mt Barker Medical Clinic is proud to be the first healthcare building in Australia to be recognised with the prestigious UL Verified Healthy Building accreditation for indoor air quality? This has been made possible because the clinic is fitted with South Australian-developed PlasmaShield® air filtration technology, which uses electron beam irradiation to eliminate airborne disease and impurities.
As part of our commitment to the health and wellness of our staff, the GPs and their patients, we recently underwent an extensive verification process to earn the UL Verified Healthy Building for Indoor Air Mark. One of the most respected names in safety, security and sustainability for buildings, UL Solutions program is designed to demonstrate that our building has excellent indoor air quality (IAQ) performance at the present time and that they have policies and plans in place to continue to advance IAQ in the future.
To achieve the UL Verified Healthy Building for Indoor Air Mark, we participated in an audit in addition to undergoing on-site visits, which included visual inspections and performance testing. To maintain our verification, surveillance will continue twice a year to demonstrate that the building continues to have excellent indoor air quality.
Testing methods used to verify indoor air quality are aligned with industry-recognised, third-party organisations such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), to name a few. Where laboratory sampling is necessary, testing methodologies are informed by the EPA Compendium of Methods, American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) D5197 and TO-17 for air sampling and EPA methods.
We are proud of having achieved this milestone toward supporting healthier indoor environments.
