Lead and Environmental Hazards Association
The Lead and Environmental Hazards Association (LEHA) is a national, non-profit association committed to advancing our nation's efforts to eliminate lead paint poisoning, and dedicated to conducting educational, research and business activities in support of the lead-based paint hazard assessment and abatement field.
It is the purpose of the organization to:
- Provide forums for the exchange of state-of-the-art information on lead-based paint detection, hazard control and abatement methods through conferences, meetings and publications;
- Initiate activities for the training, accreditation and recognition of lead-based paint industry practitioners;
- Promote legislative and regulatory efforts that enhance the professional nature of lead-based paint detection, abatement and worker health and safety practices;
- Develop a multi-year, long-range plan to permit a rational, comprehensive approach to solving the complex lead-based paint problem.
Since its inception in 1991, LEHA has grown into an organization of hundreds of individuals, organizations and companies that represent a cross-section of the lead-based paint field, including contractors, consultants, testing companies, training organizations, laboratories, housing and health officials, facility managers, and lead hazard control program administrators.
We urge you to join this growing and active organization. Your membership support and involvement will strengthen the association and, in turn, provide you with many benefits to enhance your work in the lead-based paint field.
