Lead Survey and Lead Paint Testing

Lead Survey and Lead Paint Testing in New Hampshire, Maine & Massachusetts

Lead paint is dangerous for a number of reasons, not only in homes, but in public spaces and offices as well. In 1977 the United States' Consumer Product Safety Commission, or CPSC, created a ban on lead paint because of the dangerous effects it carried. Widely used lead paint is now classified as a hazardous material and has a history of causing lasting health effects on the general population. Lead surveys and exposure monitoring are frequently needed in construction settings as well as manufacturing and industrial processes involving lead-containing materials.

RPF Environmental Inc. has NH State Certified Lead Inspector and Risk Assessor personnel that perform OSHA worker exposure surveys and EPA related waste compliance for lead and lead-containing paint across all New England states. We currently do not conduct residential lead inspections in MA and ME.

Employees at Risk

The most common victims of lead paint are children, due to their natural response of putting foreign objects and their own hands in their mouth. If an environment contains lead, the surfaces that children contact can likely get them sick. However, children are not the only ones at risk; lead dust is also a hazard for building maintenance staff, construction workers, manufacturing employees, and even some hobbyists.

Some effects of lead-based poisoning include:

  • Brain damage
  • Kidney damage
  • Headaches
  • Stomachaches
  • Nausea
  • Tiredness
  • Irritability

The best way to avoid lead poisoning is to use proper work and cleaning methods. If you believe that there is a danger of lead paint in your building, contact us today to speak with one of our lead paint experts about scheduling a survey.
