Renovation Repair Paint Rule
EFFECTIVE APRIL 22, 2010
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a new federal Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting rule.
Does your business involve the renovation, repair or painting of structures built before 1978?
Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP) is a federal regulatory program requiring all firms to be certified and their employees must be trained in use of lead-safe work practices that minimize occupants’ exposure to lead hazards. (General Contractors, Property Owners, Property Managers, Electricians, Carpenters, Plumbers and Painters.)
It applies to residential buildings, apartments and child-occupied facilities such as schools and day-care centers built before 1978.
If you have questions about the Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule’s requirements or lead poisoning prevention in general, please visit the EPA’s Web site at www.epa.gov/lead or contact us.
