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.
