Expert Witness / Litigation Support

EFCI’s Principal industrial hygienist Brandon White, has served as an expert witness on a multitude of cases involving microbiological and hazardous material litigation cases for both plaintiff and defense attorneys in the State of Arizona. Mr. White also works with several major insurance providers to provide expert IH services concerning cross contamination of buildings due to microorganisms, categorizing water loss events, moisture mapping, and regulated hazardous material related issues on large scale commercial losses.


Asbestos Survey

Asbestos is still legally imported and installed in building and building materials in the United States today.

EPA has the below explanation, taken from the EPA website. (https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/documents/asbestosfaqs_0.pdf)


On July 12, 1989, the EPA issued a final rule under Section 6 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) banning most asbestos-containing products in the United States. In 1991, the rule was vacated and remanded by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. As a result, most of the original ban on the manufacture, importation, processing, or distribution in commerce for most of the asbestos containing product categories originally covered in the 1989 final rule was overturned. Only the bans on corrugated paper, rollboard, commercial paper, specialty paper, and flooring felt and any new uses of asbestos remained banned under the 1989 rule. Although most asbestos containing products can still legally be manufactured, imported, processed and distributed in the U.S., according to the U.S. Geological Survey, the production and use of asbestos has declined significantly.

Our Clients Agree

“I wanted an IEP who took the extra steps to be sure that the causes and conditions in my home that were giving me health issues were taken not only seriously but also very thoughtfully. Brandon went the extra mile to not only test multiple different ways and inspect thoroughly but also to answer all of my questions with great detail and patience. You are in good hands with Brandon and his team.”

“Brandon was an outstanding teacher. Very professional and prepared me not only for my AMRT test but real life scenarios in the workforce. His class was enjoyable and informative.”

NATHAN NEWMAN • 8/22/2021

“I attended a workshop with Brandon White and I think this guy is very professional. He was always on time, he explained very well everything he had for us, took care of the participants attending the class and has a very good sense of humor. I wouldn’t think twice to go again to another workshop/class facilitated by him. It is very noticeable that he knows what he talks about it! He is in the business. He is not a book guy! Last but not least, he was always looking very well which is -according to my point of view- very professional! Thanks, Brandon. It was a great experience learning from a guy like you, man!”
