Safe Airflow Verification for the Built Environment
Create Safe Spaces in a Changing World
COVID-19 presents a significant safety and health risk to the built environment given the complexity of airflows and the risk of airborne virus transmission via respiratory droplets that can evaporate, turn into aerosols, float in the air for hours, travel significant distances, and live on surfaces for days.
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), a leading authority on building safety, states, “Changes to building operations, including the operation of heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems can reduce airborne exposures.” Facility and EHS teams need a solution to safely assess and mitigate their risk, and ultimately, protect occupant safety and health.
The veriDART™ Solution
SafeTraces’ groundbreaking solution, veriDART, enables Facility and EHS teams to identify transmission hotspots, assess ventilation and filtration, inform remediations, and instill public trust and confidence in building safety. The veriDART leverages airborne tracers that safely mimic the mobility of pathogens like SARS-CoV-2 droplets and aerosols to verify building safety for occupancy and re-occupancy.

The veriDART was recently deployed at a Fortune 100 technology company’s multi-purpose complex to determine a safe approach to reopening during COVID-19. Read the case study to understand how the veriDART provides a clear risk assessment for hotspots to prepare the building for the safe return of its employees.
- Survey risk assessment: SafeTraces conducts a survey risk assessment of an entire building in order to identify hotspots, assess ventilation and filtration, verify area isolative efficacy, and inform remediations in coordination with the customer’s facilities, EHS, and engineering teams.
- Targeted Risk Assessment: veriDART is used for targeted risk assessments on top of a survey risk assessment to test specific areas of building such as, Room Recovery, HVAC Settings, and Filtration.
