Lead Abatement Training

Lead Abatement Training will prepare you to safely and effectively remove lead hazards from homes, buildings or steel structures.

M.E.T.I.’s Lead Abatement Training prepares you for a great number of work sites, whether within processing, manufacturing, construction or oil and gas, which require a skilled and certified worker who can abate lead.

Along with theoretical approaches to lead and its health effects, you will work in a simulated lead abatement training facility.

Lead can be found in all parts of our environment – the air, the soil, the water, and even inside our homes. Much of our exposure comes from human activities including the use of fossil fuels including past use of leaded gasoline, some types of industrial facilities, and past use of lead-based paint in homes. Lead and lead compounds have been used in a wide variety of products found in and around our homes, including paint, ceramics, pipes and plumbing materials, solders, gasoline, batteries, ammunition, and cosmetics.

Lead is particularly dangerous to children because their growing bodies absorb more lead than adults do and their brains and nervous systems are more sensitive to the damaging effects of lead. Babies and young children can also be more highly exposed to lead because they often put their hands and other objects that can have lead from dust or soil on them into their mouths. Children may also be exposed to lead by eating and drinking food or water containing lead or from dishes or glasses that contain lead, inhaling lead dust from lead-based paint or lead-contaminated soil or from playing with toys with lead paint.
