Since 1989, BATTA has been contracted with DuPont Company to provide Environmental and Industrial Hygiene Services to all buildings located within a 50-mile radius of DuPont’s headquarters in Wilmington, DE including the Marshall Laboratory facility in Philadelphia and manufacturing plants in New Jersey.

BATTA maintains full-time employees at various DuPont sites to accomplish all of the services. Hazardous material surveys are done with EPA-accredited Building Inspectors who perform inspections and sampling for asbestos, lead, chromium, indoor air quality pollutants as well as other potential environmental hazards. Inspections are done prior to capital construction projects or maintenance activities or as part of an annual inspection of condition of known hazardous materials. Surveys and inspections routinely include roofing structures and components.

After surveys and inspections are completed, BATTA performs sample analysis at its in-house AIHA, NVLAP accredited facility. BATTA analyzes asbestos samples via PCM, PLM, and TEM (AHERA) methods, and has the capability to report results in less than 24-hours if needed. Lead is analyzed in air, water, and soil samples using Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy and TCLP analysis. Other heavy metals including RCRA analysis is also performed. Organic analysis is performed via GC/MS for PCBs, PAHs, and other organic compounds. Nuisance dust and surface dust (via TEM) analysis is also performed.

BATTA performs abatement oversight and air monitoring during any abatement activities at the sites. Using EPA-accredited Industrial Hygiene Technicians, BATTA performs monitoring for potential exposure to airborne asbestos, lead, total dust, and other potential environmental hazards. Technicians also perform onsite project oversight of abatement contractors for environmental compliance. Technicians employ the use of various media and sampling devices to collects samples for analysis. Technicians are also NIOSH 582 qualified to perform PCM analysis on site and BATTA has 2 separate on-site laboratories to support this need. When required, BATTA is able to support 24-hour coverage during shutdowns and maintenance activities.

Throughout its history with DuPont Company, BATTA has maintained an excellent safety record at all DuPont sites. BATTA has routinely been awarded annual Project Safety Excellence Awards for its recognition of outstanding project safety at all DuPont sites.
