Lead paint may not be used any more, but it can still be found in thousands of places. Homes, schools, public and commercial buildings – not to mentions furniture and playgrounds – are all environments in which dangerous lead paint may have been used in the past.

If there is a risk that lead paint is present in your properties, it’s vital to take steps to address it. The Control of Lead at Work Regulations 2002 (CLAW) specifically require employers to:
make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to the health of employees, to include whether the exposure of any employees to lead is liable to be significant
identify and implement the measures to prevent or adequately control that exposure
record the significant findings of the assessment as soon as is practicable after the assessment is made.
To identify any lead-based paint hazards and implement remedial measures, it’s essential to commission a lead survey as soon as possible.
Environtec offers you specialist non-destructive lead-in-paint surveys, analysis and support services including:
On-site XRF surveys to detect and quantify lead in paint
Detailed written reports, with recommendations
On-site sampling for laboratory analysis to identify levels of lead in dust
Verification that buildings are free of lead contamination, post-works
Provision of task-specific air monitoring equipment and analysis of air samples
Laboratory analysis for lead content of any samples you supply (e.g. dust wipes and paint chips)
Advice on the cleaning of lead contaminated sites
Advice on whether the biological monitoring of blood lead levels is needed
Our use of handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) instruments allows us to identify on-site areas of significance rapidly and give you immediate feedback. The non-destructive nature of our surveys is also particularly suitable for historic or listed buildings
