Standard Practice for Conducting Visual Assessments for Lead Hazards in Buildings
ORDER

Scope

1.1 This practice describes procedures for conducting visual assessments in buildings to visually identify the type and location of potential lead hazards. These potential hazards are associated with deteriorated leaded paint, lead in dust, or lead in soil.

1.2 This practices addresses visual assessment procedures for four lead-hazard activities: lead risk (hazard) assessment, clearance examination, assessment of paint condition, and re-evaluation inspection.

1.3 Because there is considerable overlap among the requirements for these four types of lead-hazard activities, this standard first describes a generic visual assessment procedure, and then defines a specific procedure for each assessment type in terms of additions to, or deletions from, the generic procedure.

1.4 This practice does not address testing needed to confirm the presence of lead hazards.

1.5 This practice contains notes, which are explanatory and are not part of the mandatory requirements of this standard.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
