We are able to undertake the identification and sampling for lead and other hazardous compounds within materials.
Working with lead can put your health at risk, causing symptoms including headaches, stomach pains and anaemia. Other serious health effects include kidney damage, nerve and brain damage and infertility.
The Control of Lead at Work Regulations 2002 (CLAW) place a duty on employers to prevent, or where this is not reasonably practicable, to control employee exposure to lead.
We can undertake the identification and sampling for lead and other hazardous compounds within materials such as paint. Samples taken can be tested for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’S), TBT’s, Inorganic compounds, and Heavy Metals.
Lead paint surveys & analysis are crucially important for those involved in refurbishment or renovation, particularly in period properties
For all commercial projects (refurbishment, development, and demolition), it is a legal requirement for a lead paint survey to be conducted where paintwork pre-dating 1992 is likely to be damaged or disturbed.
