EnviroMed Services’ State Licensed Inspectors performed an Asbestos Inspection at the New Canaan Town Hall. The purpose of the inspection was to confirm or negate the presence of asbestos containing building materials. Total of 350 bulk samples were collected including caulking, wallboard, sheetrock, floor tile, pipe insulation, mastic and cove base and roofing. All samples were analyzed by EnviroMed Services’ accredited laboratory (NVLAP#200858) for asbestos content using Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM).
Also, EnviroMed’s licensed Lead Inspectors/Risk Assessors test painted surfaces for lead-based paint using an X-ray Fluorescence Analyzer (XRF). This work was conducted in accordance with guidelines from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s publication,
“Guidelines for the Evaluation and Control of Lead Based Paint Hazards in Housing“; issued in 1995 and amended in October 1997, with special reference to Chapter 7, “ Lead-Based Paint Inspection”. In accordance with the City of Danbury’s request, a survey is required for lead-based paint on any representative coated components likely to have lead-based paint, namely coated components that remain from periods prior to renovations of the buildings.
EnviroMed’s Designer Team has completed the abatement specifications and the cost estimate associated with the removal. EnviroMed assisted the Town with the pre bid walkthrough and submittal reviews. EnviroMed will be prepared to conduct the monitoring during demolition this summer.
Inspection of the Arch area for potential asbestos containing materials, potential lead-based paint, and other hazardous materials was completed by EnviroMed. A sampling plan was proposed by EnviroMed to NYCDOT for the following concerns: sample ceiling plaster (two layers of plaster), sample pipe insulation, inspect and sample the office partitions and doors for asbestos, test the paint for lead, sample the dust via bulk samples and analyze for asbestos and lead, perform TCLP sampling and analysis for building debris prior to disposal, and characterize the liquid wastes in storage. Personal sampling during the work was recommended for lead in air, asbestos in air and total particulate.Full details

EnviroMed Services provides safety training based on OSHA regulations to the Wallingford Department of Public Works facilities and the Electric Division facilities. EnviroMed Services provides OSHA training programs for the Wallingford Electric Division for the past 10 years to meet their responsibility under OSHA regulations. EnviroMed Services personnel conducted an audit of town’s public utility maintenance and distribution system and work crew. EnviroMed Services personnel visited sites, which included observing daily activities that were conducted for the work crew, log our observations, have any dangerous work habits changed and abated. Once EnviroMed Services site visit and observation were completed our client asked us to write actual OSHA safety programs for the city to follow. The city at the time had no such programs and was in need of such programs. EnviroMed wrote the following OSHA Safety Programs that are being used by this client today:
