Lead is a naturally occurring element that has been widely utilized in the construction industry for many different applications. Exposure to lead can cause adverse health effects, with children often times being the most susceptible.
The most common type of lead hazards exist from dust and chip exposures from old flaking paint.
However, in addition to lead paint containment, Nesheim’s has experience in the identification and remediation of other lead hazards such as lead solder on pipes, lead soil contamination, and lead lined walls within healthcare imaging rooms.
