Northwood NH, August 22nd 2011: RPF Environmental, Inc., (RPF), an environmental consulting and testing
firm, has been awarded the New Hampshire state wide contract for asbestos
inspections, testing, analysis and air monitoring services. The contract
is provided through the NH Department of Administrative Services and is
available for use by all state agencies as well as other public entities
through the State.
One of the primary services to be provided under the contract will be the
performance of federally mandated building inspections prior to any renovation
and demolition activity. Asbestos was commonly used in many building products
such as insulations, roofing, surfacing material, and miscellaneous material
such as flooring, ceiling tile, adhesives, caulks and more. Current state
and federal regulations require an accredited inspector check for asbestos
before the start of the renovation or demolition. If found, asbestos must
then be properly remediated by a licensed abatement contractor. The abatement
work must be testing and inspected by a firm, such as RPF, independent
of the abatement contractor.
With offices in Northwood, NH and Amesbury, MA, RPF provides indoor air
quality assessments; hazardous material testing; mold assessments; construction
safety; OSHA and EPA regulatory compliance services; site inspections
for asbestos, lead-based paint, and other environmental hazards and thermal imaging.
In addition, the RPF professional development group provides corporate
health and safety training programs for clients throughout New England
including OSHA compliance, asbestos, lead paint, and related training classes.
