Lead and Asbestos Abatement: Protect Your Assets.

Whether it is lead or asbestos, these hazardous materials may be present in your facility. BRACE’s process is designed to minimize inconvenience and downtime. We believe creating partnerships provides value and it is through these partnerships that we are able to provide testing and labs that are able to identify and measure lead content. It is always our goal to minimize disruption to your operations. Our processes include full containment, chemical stripping, and needle scaling that uses HEPA vacuums to prevent particles from becoming airborne.

We operate in accordance with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the US Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), as well as, with state and local laws which may be even stricter. Our lead, mold and asbestos abatement experts have received highly specialized training that will SAFEGUARD your employees while protecting their own HEALTH and SAFETY. The abatement areas are continuously monitored to ensure zero exposure to your personnel or the environment.

BRACE understands that the removal from the premises is just as important as the containment. We work hand-in-hand with Class B haulers for the removal of the hazardous materials from facilities in accordance with government regulations.

Lead Abatement

BRACE makes sure we have you covered when it comes to lead abatement from enclosures to off-site removal.  We make sure you are in compliance with the HUD, RRP, and OSHA lead rules. We are certified and our workers are trained to provide the lead abatement, stabilization, or encapsulation services that your project requires.

We evaluate the SAFEST means to complete the scope of work. This could include covering the lead paint with flexible wall covering, paneling, or with gypsum board. Project requirements also could consist of the full paint removal and/or replacing the object coated with lead paint entirely with new material.

HEALTH and SAFETY is our #1 CORE VALUE. Our abatement procedures necessitate employees wear the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) including disposable gloves, goggles, HEPA respirator, shoe covers or booties, and disposable coveralls.

SAFETY doesn’t stop there, it continues to the end of the project.  We make sure when leaving the work area it is SAFE for your employees and their working environment.  All surfaces are cleaned from the top down throughout the project, therefore, lead particles don’t contaminate other surrounding areas.

Asbestos Abatement

We perform some of the most complex asbestos abatement projects in industrial facilities across the United States. BRACE’s personnel can help you with your project from planning through completion. Our asbestos abatement crews work under certified experienced supervisors.  We use state-of-the-art asbestos abatement techniques and equipment.  If buildings are occupied, we assure minimal disruptions and reduce our footprint as much as possible.

Asbestos fiber strength and heat resistance has historically made it a favorite as a building construction material for insulation and as a fire retardant.  When the asbestos-containing material is disturbed or damaged such as in a renovation or demolition project, particles and fibers are released into the air creating a health hazard. Our procedures ensure 100% control of fiber release from asbestos-containing materials during renovation or demolition. We can provide removal, encapsulation, repair, enclosure, and encasement, as well as, operations and maintenance programs.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) requires that you perform a survey to determine the presence of asbestos in your building or facility before doing a renovation or demolition.

BRACE has partnered with nationally recognized third party industrial hygiene companies to facilitate the survey process. Once completed, BRACE will assist in creating an abatement plan that will minimize disruptions in your day to day business.  We know there is no “SAFE” level of asbestos exposure for any type of asbestos fiber. Each job site has established regulated areas, controlling certain work practices and instituting engineering controls to reduce the airborne levels. To ensure zero exposure to personnel we will assess the risks and hazards associated with the project and provide area and personnel exposure monitoring. In addition, we use state of the art engineering and administrative controls to provide the most technologically advanced SAFETY and protective gear and equipment for our abatement crews.
