Lead Check on-site Risk Assessment.

A lead risk assessment identifies lead-based paint hazards which are conditions that can cause harmful exposures to lead, particularly for young children and pregnant women.

A risk assessment will identify lead-based paint hazards by conducting a visual examination of the dwelling for signs of paint deterioration, analyzing deteriorated paint to determine if it is lead-based and may collect dust samples for laboratory analysis. A Risk Assessment Report identifies any lead-based paint hazards found, and provides options for controlling these hazards.

  • Any immediate hazards present.
  • Any long term hazards present.
  • Methods to control existing conditions.

Risk assessments may be appropriate in the following situations:

  • Owners, buyers, or building services who want to know if a home or building has lead hazards that would likely pose a risk to themselves or their employees or occupants.

  • When a child living in the housing unit has an elevated blood lead level. (Children with elevated blood lead levels often involve more comprehensive evaluations than a standard risk assessment).

  • Property owners who want to understand the full range of hazard control options that can be used to address lead-based paint hazards.

  • Anyone who owns or manages housing with child-occupied facilities built before 1978.
