Lead in Construction

In 1978, the federal government banned using lead-based paint. Lead-based paint is not commonly found in campus buildings since most were constructed or renovated after 1978. In circumstances where lead-based paint is present and needs to be removed, the University uses licensed lead abatement contractors and ensures all work is done according to the regulations.

If you have concerns that lead-based paint is present in your work area or is being removed improperly, contact EHS at 410-706-7055.
