LEAD BASED PAINT
Individuals and firms conducting lead-based paint activities in target housing and child-occupied facilities must be trained and certified. AMRC was one of the first companies in Florida to be fully certified by the Unites States Environmental Protection Agency under Section 402 of the Toxic Substances Control Act as a Lead Paint Activities Firm. Lead is regulated in air, soil, paint, blood, water and waste material.
AMRC provides an array of lead services to all sectors including residential, governmental and industrial settings. Dedication to meeting our clients needs has lead AMRC to the purchase of XRF Technology. This instrument provides our clients with immediate results on the job-site without damaging the surface tested. This has brought AMRC to the fore front of lead testing and inspection by eliminating the need for lengthy third-party laboratory analysis.
Lead is a poisonous heavy metal that is found throughout the environment. Lead exposure can occur in various manufacturing processes, construction processes, and from general environmental exposure to lead contaminated soil, water, food and surface dust. Lead has been identified by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as the number one environmental pollutant that threatens public health in the United States. Since that designation, the U.S. Congress has enabled lead to be regulated by EPA, OSHA, and HUD.
Examples of lead-containing materials include:
- Lead-Based Paint
- Water Pipes and Joints
