As a company, SCK Group hold a licence by the Health and Safety Lead in paint presents a significant number of serious health risks if disturbed/released and as such is controlled by its own set of regulations, the Control of Lead at Work (CLAW) Regulation 2002.
As it deteriorates, lead paint mixes with dust and other household debris which can be easily breathed in, leading to potential lead poisoning.
The lead paint will be carefully removed using recognised techniques which are all focused on controlling risk.
As with all effective management control processes and specific to lead, the
risk assessment starts with a lead paint inspection, establishing if lead is in fact present and in what percentage.
As with the process for removing asbestos our experienced staff will wear the
appropriate RPE and PPE. We work in a safe containment area.
The lead paint will be carefully removed using recognised techniques which are all centred around controlling risk at source and are accompanied by air testing to demonstrate the effectiveness of the control measures implemented.
Upon completion of the works a thorough inspection of the area will be undertaken and all operatives will be fully remediated.
