Any environmental problem (except mold) has specific regulations set by the Federal Government that state the qualifications needed to be able to legally work on environmental projects. They state the degree of training required and lay out the accepted means of working on a project. Whether it’s called mitigation, abatement, or remediation, it amounts to the same thing - removing the environmental hazard in a legal, complete and safe manner.

The EPA divides their certifications into areas of the job to be performed and restricts their ability to perform outside of that area. Some of the industry certifications for mold do the same.

Inspector: This individual is responsible for surveying the job for quantity, location and type of hazard contamination. They are the ONLY individual qualified to do sampling on the project.

Project Designer: This is the certification set out for the individual that takes the information provided by the Inspector, and devises a written plan for removing the environmental hazard in a safe and legal manner.

Contractor Supervisor: This certification is required for the individual responsible for safe and legal completion of the job - as the work is being performed. They are usually the contractor’s job supervisor. They are also the person usually responsible for compliance with OSHA regulations during the project.

The EPA’s Asbestos and Lead Paint regulations demand these jobs are not to be done by someone not carrying the certifications for the particular part of the job that they are performing.

How do I  choose the right environmental contractor?

Westlife is not a contractor!

We are consultants and do not specify any single contractor for our clients unless a very specific limitation on a specific job requires very specific qualifications.

We allow the client to choose their contractor - as best fits their own preferences (budget, compatibility, availability, etc.) We only advise that the contractor chosen is to be qualified and able to properly follow our protocols for the job.

Making your choice...

There are some very specific things to look for in choosing an environmental contractor.

An environmental Contractor should be able to prove proof of coverage for Workman’s Compensation, for Environmental Hazards (Called Pollution Insurance), as well as normal business liability insurance, and proper business licensing.

A competent contractor will be able to provide copies of their certifications from the EPA to show that they are deemed qualified to deal with the problem at hand. A mold contractor will be able to provide copies of their industry certifications to show the same level of competence.

Because mold remediation and assessment are not covered by EPA regulatory restriction - it is up to the client to make sure the proper certifications are in place when selecting a mold contractor.

Any competent mold contractor should happily provide this information before beginning a project.

Experience: A qualified contractor should be able to provide references to clients from previous jobs that are similar to yours. Check these references BEFORE signing any paperwork!  An experienced contractor should be able to provide you with a history of completion in the type of job you are hiring. You want to know that they are experienced in the successful completion of jobs like yours before you hire them.

If requested, Westlife can provide a list of contractors with which we have had experience, that have previously provided competent services to others of our clients, and are available you to choose from. We do not, however, limit your choice of contractor and will ready work with any qualified contractor.
