Lead overexposure is one of the most common overexposures found in industry and is a leading cause of workplace illness. It is also a major potential public health risk.
In general populations, lead may be present in hazardous concentrations in food, water, and air. Sources include paint, urban dust, and folk remedies.
Lead poisoning is the leading environmentally induced illness in children.
At greatest risk are children under the age of six because they are undergoing rapid neurological and physical development. SRP Environmental utilizes an X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) instrument to measure the lead content in building materials. The XRF is a non-destructive testing method approved by regulatory agencies. Our experts can conduct a lead-paint survey from structures as small as a single-family residence to a major manufacturing facility.
