Does your business involve the renovation, repair or painting of structures built before 1978?

If so, there are new federal regulations that went into effect in April 2010 which may prevent you from performing your work. Under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencies Lead-Based Paint Renovation, Re- pair, andPainting (RRP) Program, construction firms must apply for and receive EPA Certification to disturb paint as part of their work in pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities.  In addition, all of these jobs must be supervised by Certified Renovators; specifically, individuals who  have  completed an EPA-accredited, full-day training course. The training course is required for any contractor that is involved in any activity that will - or has the potential to - disturb six square feet of lead-based paint in a room, or 20 square feet on the exterior. The rule does not apply to minor maintenance or repair activities; however, window replacement is not considered minor maintenance or repair.

 

Who Should Take This Class?

  • Home Improvement/Renovation Contractors
  • Remodelers/Carpenters
  • Painters
  • Plumbers
  • Electricians
  • Maintenance Personnel
  • Residential Property Managers/Owners
  • Workers Removing or Modifying Painted Surfaces
  • Anyone disturbing more than 6 sq. ft. (interior) & 20 sq. ft. (exterior) of lead-based paint.
The US Environmental Protection Agency requires that Renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, childcare facilities and schools must be performed by an EPA Certified Renovator working for an EPA Certified Firm and specific work practices must be implemented to prevent lead contamination.
