ABOUT US

Kurado’s mission is simple. We want to make every inspection fast, accurate, and on budget. In a world where data is constantly organized, collected, and shared instantaneously, we believe environmental consulting cannot lag behind. Businesses that don’t adapt to new standards die. We’ve built the tools to help you stay ahead.

Kurado is proud to work with environmental consulting firms who are ready to improve the way they conduct their business. Our clients are industry veterans who know every intricacy of the inspection industry and every idiosyncrasy of facility management. They’ve seen the writing (and mold) on the wall, and they’re ready to move into a new chapter for their business and their customers. Our customers are responsible for evaluating the safety of the more than 6 million workplaces regulated by federal safety and health standards, and employ the more than 6,700 industrial hygienists certified by the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH).
