Asbestos and Lead
Legend operates a NIST NVLAP accredited laboratory (Lab No. 102081-0) in St Paul, MN and has licensed consulting offices in North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
All of our locations offer licensed asbestos inspector, supervisors, management planners, and project designers. We have extensive experience consulting on asbestos-related project including: pre-demolition, pre-renovation, and general survey inspections; AHERA-regulated projects; air monitoring and oversight; and environmental project management.
We follow the 40 CFR Appendix E to Subpart E of Part 763, “Interim Method of the Determination of Asbestos in Bulk Insulation Samples” and “Method for the Determination of Asbestos in Bulk Building Materials,” 1993 (EPA 600/R-93-116) using a Polarized Light Microscope (PLM); this is the most common type of analysis.
All of our locations provide lead based paint testing services; these services include inspections; risk assessments; abatement project designs; worker exposure monitoring; and clearance testing. Most testing is performed using an XRF analyzer – a completely non-destructive and cost-effective method.
