Mr. McGee’s presentation will focus on the many aspects of environmental analysis for lead in a variety of matrices.  Lead is a significant environmental and occupational contaminant that has been recognized as a toxicity hazard for thousands of years.  Historically, lead has had many beneficial use applications in products such as paint, ceramics, pipes and plumbing materials, solders, gasoline, batteries, munitions and cosmetics.  However, as lead enters the environment, it can cause toxic effects on surrounding ecosystems, food and water sources.  As a result, it is often necessary to evaluate lead concentrations through the analysis of material, wipe and air samples to ensure compliance with federal and state regulations, as well as site clean-up specifications.  In his webinar, Mr. McGee will provide an overview of air, wipe, and paint sampling approaches for lead, as well as the applicable regulatory levels and data evaluation approaches.
