Contractors Must Be Trained In Lead Safety Practices By April 22, 2010

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will begin enforcement on April 22 of a rule which requires all contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb more than six feet of lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities and schools be certified and follow specific work practices to prevent lead poisoning.
The rule is a part of the EPA’s Lead-Safe Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) program which was established April 22, 2008. Under the RRP program, firms must be certified by the April 22 deadline. EPA has also produced a series of advertisements to help get the word out about the upcoming deadline. To view the advertisements, Click Here.
Individual contractors must complete an EPA-accredited training course in order to receive certification.
