Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention

QVHD conducts environmental investigations of premises where children with an elevated blood lead level have been found. Paint, dust, soil, and water samples are sent to the state laboratory for analysis. The property owner is required by law to abate lead from premises with toxic levels. In addition QVHD can identify lead hazards of all premises and ensure remediation is done using lead safe work practices.
