Hazardous Substances Found in Building Materials


Understand frequently encountered hazardous materials in building and how best to deal with any immediate exposure issues.

A common misconception from the public is that building materials cannot contain hazardous materials. Many people are familiar with the hazards associated with asbestos and lead containing building materials. However, most do not realize that there are a number of hazards materials being used in current construction. Exposure to these can create immediate health concerns to the occupants along with considerable liability for the owner. Determining the type, location and quantity of these hazards inside a building before they create an exposure issue to the occupants requires a basic working knowledge of how to at least recognize the presence of suspected hazardous materials. Learn key information that can help you understand the basics for assembling a team of experts once suspect hazardous materials are identified to properly conduct the contamination identification with a cost-effective sampling plan, conduct a risk assessment, design a control plan to deal with any immediate exposure issues and, if necessary, how to execute a cost effective regulatory compliant remediation plan.
