Lead in Paint

There is no specific limit for lead in paint but, for guidance, the HSE Control of Lead at Work Regulations, 2002, Section 65, classes lead contents of less than 1% Pb as being in a category where work with lead is not liable to result in significant exposure.

For lead levels exceeding this value, an appropriate risk assessment, as detailed in Section 54 of the above publication, should be carried out.

Ayerst Environmental Limited uses the latest Scanning Electron Microscope technology to offer 100% accurate, added value lead analysis reports at competitive prices.
