Consolidated Safety Services (CSS) was the Indoor Air Quality testing company started by Jolanda Janczewski after leaving ENV Services. She hired Jon Yereb and Nancy Stone

Before CSS, 'Jola' was the Service manager of the IAQ testing company ENV Services (aka ENVIRON and Environmental Air Controls). Her company continued to work for the tobacco industry doing fake indoor air testing.

Her two most influential senior staff Jon Yereb and Nancy Stone (Stone may have been a partner in the business) were of immense value to the industry, mainly through the staff (and Jola herself) giving evidence at ordinance and legislative hearings. They were also sent on briefing tours to meet the media. These were tours organised (by Fleishman-Hillard PR) to provide press briefings and they also did radio and TV interviews. The line they always promoted was that some buildings (offices and public spaces) were sick and needed remedial maintenance, rather than the IAQ problems were caused by high levels of tobacco smoke in the indoor environment.
