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 may enter the environment from these past and current uses. Lead can also be emitted into the environment from industrial sources and contaminated sites, such as former lead smelters. While natural levels of lead in soil range between 50 and 400 parts per million, mining, smelting, and refining activities have resulted in substantial increases in lead levels in the environment, especially near mining and smelting sites.

The IICRC standards serve to develop common, industry-accepted language and terminology that will lead to a higher level of competency for workers in their respective fields. IICRC-certified technicians set themselves apart through training, experience and comprehensive examinations.
The examinations consist of the successful completion of one or more of the 28 certification courses available. The exams are based off standards set by the IICRC, which is an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) member and an accredited standards developer.
When you hear the term “industry standard,” it means a standard of function or operation that is carried out in that respective industry. The IICRC standards are upheld to the highest globally recognized standard in which all IICRC technicians and firms govern themselves by the quality and assurance they provide to the consumer.
