Lead Risk Assessments are conducted based on guidelines established by the US Dept of Housing and Urban Development and coupled with our experience of providing lead consulting to various clients. A lead based paint risk assessment is conducted to determine whether lead based paint hazards exist and, if so, provide solutions on reducing and managing such hazards until complete abatement takes place.
A lead-based paint hazard is any condition that causes exposure to lead from lead-contaminated dust, soil or paint that is deteriorated or present on accessible, friction, or impact surfaces that would result in adverse human health effects. At SEC, our staff are highly skilled at identifying potential lead based paint hazards and then using XRF testing, dust wipe testing and soil sampling to determine where lead hazards exist. Our risk assessment reports are designed to be easily understood with common sense and cost effective recommendations for dealing with identified lead hazards.
