What is EPA Lead Safety Practice Training| Lead Certification Class?

EPA lead safety practice training

Under the new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) RRP rule, in effect on April 2010, maintenance workers, contractors, and others executing renovation, repair and painting (RRP) projects that disturb lead-based paint in apartments, homes, schools, and child care facilities constructed prior to 1978 must be certified. Child-occupied facilities are defined as residential, commercial or public buildings where children under age 6 years old are present on a regular basis. The EPA lead safety practice training requirements apply to painting, repair or renovation, activities. The rule doesn’t apply to modest repair or maintenance activities where less than 6 square feet of lead-based paint is disturbed inside facilities or where less than 20 square feet of lead paint is disturbed on the exterior. Window replacement isn’t minor repair or maintenance.

All firms executing or wanting to do repair, renovation or painting work required EPA lead safety practice training and must become certified by April 22, 2010. Firms can get certification by applying to EPA or to the State.

In addition, firms must have at least one “Certified Renovator” assigned to RRP jobs where lead paint is disturbed. To become a certified renovator, the single firm must successfully complete the EPA lead safety practice training, renovator initial or refresher course conducted by a State-accredited or EPA RRP training provider like ABLE Safety Consulting.
