Safety & Hazardous Materials Workshop

Preservation Alliance of West Virginia (PAWV) is giving an instructional workshop about Hazardous Materials in Historic Buildings on Friday, July 26th at Arthurdale Heritage Center from 11am – 5pm.  Lynn Stasick, PAWV Statewide Field Representative and EPA-certified lead paint renovator will be the instructor for the workshop.  The content will focus on common hazardous materials found in historic buildings including lead paint, mold/mildew, and asbestos.  Lynn will provide safety and mitigation tips for dealing with all three of these common hazards.  The workshop will explain and quell myths about these common issues.  It will also help participants to design plans to approach these problems.

Participants will also be led on a tour of a PAWV 2012 Endangered Site, the Arthurdale School Buildings, to investigate the hazards discussed during the workshop.

The workshop is free for PAWV members and WV Endangered Property Site Representatives, and lunch will be provided for a $10 fee.  There is a $15 fee to attend the workshop for non-members.
