Asbestos

I understand the problems asbestos-related situations can present to facility owners and managers. So I employ a phased approach to help you prioritize your tasks — and minimize your costs.

Due to the latency period of asbestos-related disease, and as required by law, I will maintain all asbestos project documents for a period of thirty (30) years. Additionally, I advise our clients to maintain their reports

  • Preliminary Site Surveys to determine the existence of asbestos
  • AHERA inspections at educational institutions and public buildings
  • Risk assessment and recommendations, based on Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements for asbestos
  • Explanation of alternative methods for managing asbestos in place, if possible
  • Development and implementation of property-specific operations and maintenance plans
  • Specifications, bid package and contractor selection assistance
  • Abatement management, including air quality monitoring, contractor supervision, baseline and final air clearance, area release documentation
  • In-house NIOSH 582 Reader

Lead

In order to address lead-based paint and its adverse effects on our nation’s housing, the Housing and Community Development Act was signed into law on October 28, 1992. Title X of this bill, the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act, provided a comprehensive approach to deal with the problem.

The new standards proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency apply specifically to the rule’s mention of lead-based paint activity. In the detection of lead-based paint, and the management of its alleviation, we adhere strictly to the highest possible standards.

Commercial buildings and superstructures:

  • Identification of the existence and location of lead-based paint
  • Development of removal specifications and work plans
  • Contractor supervision
  • Abatement monitoring & Clearance
  • Target housing and public buildings:
  • Inspection of the facility
  • Identifying the presence of lead-based paint
  • Risk assessment
  • Abatement monitoring
  • Individuals engaged in the performance of these activities are trained appropriately for their job category:

Lead testing

  • Inspections using direct reading X-ray fluorescence (XRF)
  • Lead in water sampling
  • Inspections using direct reading X-ray Fluorescence (XRF)
  • Lead in water sampling

EPA, OSHA, NIOSH and other occupational health related associations in the U.S. have not established permissible exposure levels (PEL), recommended exposure limits (REL), or other limit values for aeroallergens. Those requiring expert advisement should retain the services of a professional IAQ consultant such as myself.
