Nationwide Hazardous Management

Lead Paint Removal

AA Woods undertake every aspect of lead paint removal using highly trained site teams and the latest technologies.

Lead in paint presents a significant number of health risks if disturbed or released and as such is controlled by its own set of regulations, the Control of Lead at Work (CLAW) Regulations 2002.

Lead can cause serious health problems such as anaemia or kidney disease and research has linked exposure to a small number of occupational cancers.

Lead can be found in construction workplaces and is commonly used as a specialist material and is present in many older buildings.

A lead survey should be undertaken initially to determine the location and severity of any contamination.
