Family Environmental has extensive experience and training in assuring compliance with OSHA 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1910.120 and 1926. Our personnel are trained off-site in such areas as: lead-based paint inspections, risk assessments, asbestos building inspections and certified hazardous material management (CHMM). Given our extensive safety qualifications, we are able to provide safe working conditions for our employees and for the employees of the abatement contractors that we employ.
Furthermore, Family Environmental is experienced in the development and implementation of site-specific health and safety plans (SSHASP). Factors considered in SSHASP development are hazard identification and analysis, employee exposure routes, environmental monitoring methods, hazard communication programs, emergency response plans, personnel training requirements, PPE selection, site control, confined space entry, and decontamination procedures.
Our environmental technicians are experienced in the operation of various types of direct read instrumentation, including photo ionization detectors (PIDs), flame ionization detectors (FIDs), noise dosimeters, O2/H2S, radiation detectors and colorimetric indicator tubes. We perform personal and area monitoring for various compounds including Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and metals. The information that Family Environmental obtains from this monitoring is used to establish appropriate engineering controls, to select adequate PPE and to maintain employee occupational exposure below permissible exposure limits (PELs). Additionally, Family Environmental staff has conducted field activities in various levels of PPE, including Level B and C operations.
