Packed with checklist, tables and ";quick lookup"; materials, this manual provides a step by step approach for overseeing workers who are performing the activities specified in a lead abatement work plans. With this book in hand, Construction Managers, Construction Engineers, Architects, Facilities Managers and Building Owners will be able to:

  • Ascertain the presence of lead by having an independent laboratory remove and test representative samples that will provide a profile of contaminated surfaces.
  • Prepare a plan outlining the areas from which lead is to be abated. Generally, the EPA allows residential contractors to dispose of lead-based paint (LBP) as household waste. For more extensive work local authorities may require that the plan be filed with the appropriate forms to the agencies with jurisdiction for review and approval. In either case, the contractor will be required to submit copies, together with insurance and other contract requirements, to the general contractor, construction manager or client’s representative.
  • Understand the contractor’s compliance with OSHA regulation 29CFR 1926.62, and respirators that comply with 29CFR1910.34, to reflect the degree of exposure in the specific project.
  • Schedule and coordinate work site activities with building occupants as well as other consultants and contractors and arrange for proper disposal of lead containing waste created during work activities.
