An EPA certified lead abatement contractor uses a trowel to scrape a sample of lead paint off the side of an old house.

EPA Certified Lead Abatement Contractors

EPA-certified lead abatement contractors from ATS have the training and experience to prevent lead exposure during renovation and demolition work. While industries have taken steps to reduce lead in manufactured products and modern houses, people may encounter lead in the paint, piping, plumbing, and ceramics in houses and buildings raised before 1978. Left alone, lead-based paint poses little threat, but renovation and repair projects may disturb lead-based materials.
Adult lead exposure may contribute to the following:
Construction and renovation professionals are especially vulnerable to lead exposure. Decades of studies have also linked lead exposure to anemia and slowed growth in children who touch, inhale, or ingest lead. To prevent liability and adverse health risks, clients request lead evaluation and abatement services from EPA-certified contractors such as ATS.
Lead Detection
ATS serves commercial, institutional, and industrial sites during renovations, repairs, and demolition projects that may cause lead exposure. Per EPA guidelines, we undergo a rigorous recertification process every five years to keep our techniques fresh and our professionals informed of recent changes to regulations.

Our EPA-certified inspectors can safely identify lead-based materials. A lead survey is a thorough inspection of every surface potentially impacted by the renovation or demolition project. After lead detection, a risk assessor can identify the type, location, and severity of lead throughout the building. The building owner may choose to remove the lead-based material or establish a maintenance plan with regular inspections.

Lead Remediation
If selected as a demolition contractor for lead abatement, an ATS lead abatement team will follow safe and efficient procedures for demolition and cleanup. ATS can support worksite safety and compliance with federal, state, and local regulations. Our trained and certified professionals can train employees to comply with OSHA and EPA standards so personnel can monitor and document lead exposure during work activities.

A Resident Project Representative (RPR) from ATS can perform worksite observations during renovations and demolition to ensure compliance with OSHA 29 CFR 1029.62, a standard dictating that individuals potentially exposed to lead-based materials must wear protective gear, undergo biological monitoring (such as blood sampling), and complete hazard training. ATS can also support worksite safety through air monitoring and wipe samples.

Throughout a project, ATS can help clients dispose of lead-based waste according to EPA guidelines. Using the Lead Toxic Characteristic Leaching Procedure (Lead TCLP), our experts can classify and remove lead materials to the appropriate locations.

EPA Standards and Regulations
As an EPA-certified contractor, ATS can ensure lead abatement complies with federal regulations, such as:
