• Site Inspections and Risk Assessment conducted by an EPA Certified Lead Paint Risk Assessor
• Identify LBP containing materials within the structure
• Identify LBP areas of concern external to the structure
• Sample collection by either X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) or bulk sampling as required by the site
• Interpretation of direct reading samples or off-site accredited laboratory analysis.
• Site-specific building diagram, clearly demonstration sample location
• Digital photographic documentation
• Room-by-room inventory of LB as appropriate
• Complete report of documentation, findings, and mitigation recommendations.
Abatement Oversight & Clearance Sampling:
LEA will provide project management and oversight of the abatement to expedite the remediation efforts and restore the facility to normal operating conditions with minimal interruption. Common activities include:
• Provide a Scope of Work delineation for contractor remediation
• Conduct contractor walkthroughs for proper bidding procedures
• Provide oversight of the remediation, on-going visual inspections, and ensure timely and complete remediation processes
• Air samples are collected during the abatement to ensure containment and filtration are effective
• Following the abatement, bulk dust samples analyzed by an accredited laboratory will provide clearance documentation
• A completion report including documentation and results
LEA has provided extensive training for lead awareness for workers that have a potential exposure based on the work conducted. This includes various construction trades, as well as those working in site locations that may have deteriorating paint conditions. This training provides the workers a better understanding of the potential hazards faced, including exposure routes, best personal hygiene practices, and the regulatory concerns related to specific work activities.
