Nielsen Environmental is an innovative asbestos and general contractor, that specializes in lead removal, mold remediation, and seismic retrofitting. As we demonstrate in our day to day work, we want people to be safe in the spaces they inhabit and work. Safely cleaning up environmental and health hazards, and preventative work is our commitment to ensuring the safety of the environment for all of its future inhabitants. When we successfully complete the highly regulated jobs we do by hiring carefully trained workers who are re-certified every year (including medical exams with records that are kept for 30 years) we know that we are protecting the environment and its future, while keeping the people who do this as safe as possible in the process. We are honest with our clients, highly insured to protect them and our workers, and have had zero OSHA violations in our 30+ years of business.
At the end of the day, we feel good about the positive impact our work has done for the environment. We would like to support the education of a student who can demonstrate their passion and commitment to cleaning up the environment and keeping its future safe. We want to foster the education of someone who plans to do this through their education, work, career and/or volunteer work. Because of this we have created Nielsen Environmental’s, Keep the Environment Safe scholarship. By investing in our outstanding environmental keepers today, we know that we are investing in the safety of our future tomorrows.
