EPA RRP Lead Safety Training Course

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania – Renovation debris must be held back for both internal and outside work. The use of various tools is forbidden as a part of lead safety, while the use of other specialized tools around is asked. Recognized lead safety cleaning and disposal practices are expected. Cleaning testing and verification must be executed. All stages of the renovation in compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Rule must be documented with record keeping.

The goal is to minimized or eliminates the hazard of ingesting or inhaling lead paint dust resulting from the work. Just contractors that are EPA-licensed Certified Renovators registered with the State of Pennsylvania, and their specially trained staff, are permitted to do lead-safe work practices.

The problem is that it’s often impossible to find out if a task will or won’t demand the use of lead-safety work practices, till the work field has been proved for lead paint, particularly if the home’s age is unsure. The fabrication and sale of leaded paint was prohibited in 1978, but there was for sure some residual lead paint used by homeowners, painters, and contractors after that time. It possibly prudent for any householder to have painted surfaces proved. Lead safety testing requires an EPA approved test kit, and has to be handled a Certified Renovator.

To restrain liability, the painters, and contractors requires a homeowner’s signed up verification of the dwelling’s age. Also, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) or other governmental help must be disclosed. The age of a dwelling may be found out by processes such as public land records, private real estate postings, multiple listing services, tax assessor records, foreclosure notices, deed records, etc. If the age of the dwelling is somewhat in question, lead examination is the best recourse to compensate the homeowner’s health and the Contractor’s liability. EPA has sanctioned to seek civil fines of $37,500 per offense and an extra criminal fine plus jail time for intentional and willful violations of the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule.
