For building managers, insurance companies and property owners when it comes to lead hazards concerns, it is absolutely better to know than to not know.
It is scary knowing how widely lead was used before it was banned in 1978. Prior to that year, many apartment buildings, schools and other commercial buildings regularly utilized this hazardous material. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, lead still remains in about 24 million housing units nationwide. This means that there are still a large number of people in danger of being exposed to lead in New York State.
While this figure may seem staggering, there are easy steps you can take in order to look after the health of your residents as well as your liabilities. If you're responsible for a property which contains lead, or if you expose lead during the course of renovation or construction work, you could be found liable under federal, New York state and city law.
