Be sure you and your team will get EPA lead training certification. If you aren’t EPA-trained and accredited, you risk significant fines and the potential for shedding your business.
Based on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), painting, renovation and maintenance activities might discharge lead dust and chips from paints produced prior to 1978. In order to avoid lead poisoning, the EPA released its Lead Renovation, Repair & Painting (RRP) regulations, which gone into effect April 22, 2010.
Contractor companies and individual contractors carrying out outdoor or indoor renovation, repair, and painting jobs that disturb lead-based paint in dwellings, daycare facilities, and educational institutions constructed prior to 1978 needs to be certified, trained, and comply with particular work procedures to avoid lead contamination. Noncompliant contractors could possibly be penalized up to $37,500 per violation, on a daily basis.
To obtain EPA lead safe certification for lead paint work, contractors should pay a fee and enroll in an 8-hour EPA-approved lead safe certification training course addressing the following:
- Types of procedures for notifying residents and other accountable parties about lead dangers
- Accepted dust-containment, cleanup, and disposal methods
- Needed documentation and record-keeping
