National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week and Protecting Children, Building Occupants, and Workers from Exposure Risks

CTSI provides industrial hygiene and environmental testing, consulting, and training services to identify lead and other hazardous materials to mitigate exposure risks and to help keep companies and institutions in regulatory compliance.


CTSI is proud to support the efforts of National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week.

National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week (NLPPW) takes place this week. Each year during NLPPW, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) join forces to bring together individuals, organizations, industry, and state and local governments to increase lead awareness and reduce childhood exposures to the toxic heavy metal.

These efforts continue to be a critical area of focus as HUD warns there are still millions of households with children under 6 years of age with lead exposure hazards. CDC also shares that protecting children from exposure to lead is important for lifelong good health as no safe blood lead level in children has been identified. Even low levels of lead in blood have been shown to negatively affect a child’s intelligence, ability to pay attention, and academic achievement.

“Unfortunately, lead can still be found inside and outside of residential, institutional, and commercial buildings in New York and across the nation,” said Frank Selamie, President of CTSI. “In most cases, the main source of lead comes from lead-based paints, which were used before 1978. Water is another all too common exposure risk, as lead pipes and brass fixtures can leach it into drinking water. Some children can even be exposed to lead dust due to their parents’ jobs.”

CTSI is proud to support the efforts of NLPPW. Their industrial hygiene and environmental specialists offer testing, consulting, and training services for lead and lead-based paint-related projects. On the team are EPA lead certified risk assessors and inspectors who have successfully performed thousands of projects for schools, universities, daycare centers, and other government, commercial, and institutional clients. CTSI’s services comply with the NYC Department of Health, HUD, and EPA guidelines to protect children, workers, and building occupants.
