A Review of Lead Sampling, Analytical and Data Evaluation Approaches

Tuesday, October 24, 2017 - 1:30 P.M. EDT

About This Webinar:

Lead is a significant environmental and occupational contaminant that has been recognized as a toxicity hazard for thousands of years. Lead can be found in all parts of our environment – the air, the soil, the water, and even inside our homes. Lead and lead compounds have been used beneficially in a wide variety of products found in and around our homes, including paint, ceramics, pipes and plumbing materials, solders, gasoline, batteries, ammunition and cosmetics. Lead may enter the environment from these past and current uses.
Federal and state regulatory standards have helped to reduce the amount of lead in air, drinking water, soil, consumer products, food, and occupational settings. It is often necessary to evaluate lead concentrations through the analysis of material, wipe and air samples to evaluate compliance with these regulations as well as site clean-up specifications.
The purpose of this webinar is to provide a basic overview of air sampling, wipe sampling, and paint sampling approaches for Lead contamination. Applicable Lead regulatory levels and data evaluation approaches will also be reviewed.

  • Health Effects of Lead
