RE: welding to structure painted with lead base paint

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

It has been a few years since I last dealt with a lead project.  The lead
must be removed prior to welding.  Several commercial companies can blast or
remove the lead areas and dispose based on federal and local regulations.

Take a look at "OSHA 29 CFR Part 1926, Lead Exposure in Construction"  I
recall it is a downloadable from

Subject: welding to structure painted with lead base paint

We have a little project that involves attaching to a structure that is
likely to have been painted with lead paint.  The structure is outside and
the work will be 50 feet above grade.  It is not a big job and I wouldn't
normally worry about this, but my client is concerned and wants to make sure
that we do what is required by whatever agency would control this (EPA?).
Have any of you gone through this and can point me in the right direction?
I would like to cover it in a catch-all note and be done with it if

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
