Staff & Skills Development
In order to ensure that Healthy Buildings International remain at the forefront of development within the industry, staff are actively encouraged to pursue training and research. Indeed, this is seen as an important means of assuring they provide the most up-to-date information to their clients. It is therefore no surprise to learn that a member of the HBI staff was the very first to enrol on the new MSc course in Intelligent Buildings at Reading University. A lot of this information along with latest legislation, which impacts upon our clients and the indoor environment, is published in HBI's regular newsletters or can be viewed in more detail on the news page.
Global approach to quality
Healthy Buildings International staff routinely make technical presentations or conduct continual professional development seminars for clients, associations and conventions. In addition, HBI personnel have acted as expert witnesses in several recent court cases.
As all HBI building inspections throughout the world are undertaken to the same exacting standards, the information is compiled and recorded in a unique database, thus enabling HBI to pass on its world-wide technical experience to its clients. HBI's UK Quality Management Systems achieved registration to ISO 9002 in January 1996. HBI also hold full Employee and Public Liability Insurance as well as Professional Indemnity Insurance.
