Lead Paint Abatement
Employers and building owners are greatly concerned with lead exposure when planning a renovation or demolition project. The OSHA Construction Standard for lead (29 CFR 1926.62) details training requirements, medical monitoring, blood level protection, prohibited activities, and work practices for dealing with lead exposure. It also requires building owners to notify employees and contractors of the presence of lead contaminates in their building.
Eagle Environmental® assists clients in determining if their property has lead paint, assessing the potential risk of lead exposure, selecting the most cost effective method of properly managing the abatement of lead paint, and performing the actual abatement work. Abatement work can consist of removal, repair, encapsulation and enclosure.
Eagle Environmental is certified to perform inspections for lead paint risk. Following our inspection, the building owner can decide to:
- Manage the lead paint in place, or
- Have the lead paint removed, or
- A combination of both
We often recommend an independent consultant to assess all abatement needs and then to recommend a course of abatement to the customer. If the building owner decides to proceed with abatement, we will design an abatement plan and provide air monitoring and project management. Following abatement, we will conduct an inspection to ensure that the lead has been properly and thoroughly removed. We can provide, at customer request, air clearance monitoring to evaluate the airborne concentrations.
Eagle Environmental uses the following sampling techniques:
- Atomic Absorption (AA) analysis
- XRF (X-ray Fluorescence) machine
As a service to our clients, we can arrange for the analytical laboratory testing of lead samples. Licensed lead testing laboratories must use Atomic Absorption analysis. We provide clients with a complete written report of the analysis.
