Lead Safety for Renovation, Repair, and Painting*
All persons who provide construction trade services (e.g., Carpentry, Painting, Renovation, Remodeling, HVAC, Plumbing, Electrical, Modernization, Repair, Maintenance, etc.) in houses built before 1978 should attend this 1-day professional training course. The objectives of the course are to assist people in the construction trades to do their jobs in a manner that will greatly reduce the likelihood of exposure to the hazards of lead. This course is currently required for any and all persons and firms that work on federally owned or federally assisted/funded residential dwelling units that were built before 1978, when any work in that structure will impact at least 2 square feet of a surface area. The reason for the mandate is due to the fact that persons in construction related trades have a much higher incidence of causing lead poisoning, including the poisoning of their own families, than most all other trades. Effective April 22, 2010, on a Nationwide basis, any person working on any pre-1978 residential property where they will impact equal to or greater than 6 square feet of any surface coating will be mandated to have successfully completed this professional 1-day training course. Additionally, all persons will be required to be licensed/certified by the EPA. There will also be a requirement for refresher training for any person who becomes licensed/certified.
