EPA Lead RRP
Instructor: Bruce DeLoatch
Are YOU in compliance or will you be fined $37,500?
It IS the law!
The EPA’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule requires contractors, 'subs', renovators, painters, electricians, plumbers, restoration contractors, roofers, window installers, property managers & staff..... and anyone else that disturbs lead based paint to be RRP certified. If you are 'disturbing' more than 6 sq.ft of the interior of a home or child-occupied structure or 20 sq. ft.of the exterior of the structure built before 1978. Why?
Due to the fact that many homes before that date contain lead-based paint, the EPA has made in a law that requires testing to see if these structures contain lead-based paint. Ignore it and the fines are $37,500 per day, per occurrence. The dangers of lead poisoning are very real. There are proven health risks to the people that live there as well as you & your family you take the contaminated lead dust home to. It is now law you and you are required to perform 'lead-safe' work practices in and on these homes.
Training is easy. It's one day.
The test for certification is 25 questions, multiple choice.
Our training has lots of 'hands-on' so you know how to safely test for lead paint and to perform 'lead -safe' work practices.
