It is an investment when you do the right thing; the cost otherwise is a heavy conscience. It might surprise many to know lead paint is still used within the United States. While the use of this application has been illegal for several decades in residential settings, it remains legal in many industrial settings.
Why? Lead paint is durable. It is protective of metals, helping to reduce corrosion. That is a fact.
Facts do not always prove to win popular opinion. In a healthy business environment facts can, however, create healthy dialogues for what is not only right within the business itself, but what is right for those whom they serve.
Recently, a power company found itself at that very place. After great consideration and arriving at what was most important, their choice to remove lead paint from towers within their service area became a redefining element of who they wanted to become within their community. Serving their customers and the environment in which they immediately affect has taken precedence. The total cost to repaint 6,000 transmission towers will be about $300 million to 400 million, according to the article.
