Asbestos & Lead
asbestos inspectors and qualified lead inspectors
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral and was a common construction material. Exposure to asbestos causes lung diseases such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, and other cancerous and non-cancerous illnesses. It is an extremely hazardous material and is highly regulated by state and federal agencies.
OSHA, Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) and EPA rules can seem complicated, and they overlap in many ways. However, just because you adhere to one set of rules and codes, doesn’t mean you are in compliance with the other. You never want to assume or cut corners in this area. Both departments have their own rules for a reason and we can ensure you are in line with both. Failure to do so could expose your workers, clients, costumers, and the general public to asbestos. In addition to the known health complications asbestos causes, you are opening the door for costly liability issues and difficult public relations.
