SOCOTEC serves various clients in the healthcare sector both with regard to care and cure. We do this by executing projects in the areas of air and water quality. Carrying out work in the healthcare sector is different from in offices. They are almost always 24-hour companies, which means operational reliability and unnecessary inconvenience for patients have to be taken into account.

SOCOTEC’s clients include (teaching) hospitals, but also care institutions for short and long-term care. In these buildings, preventive air quality inspections or air tests are carried out periodically or following complaints from patients or other users of the buildings. For example that it is too hot or too cold or that there are problems with regard to drafts, odours, dry eyes, headaches, etc. The engineer carries out an inspection, conducting physical and bacteriological measurements and continuous monitoring. Recommendations for resolving the complaints are drawn up on the basis of the inspection and analysis results.
