|The Lead-Safe Work Tool Kit can make it easier for you to work with the EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule. As of April 22, 2010, the EPA requires that anyone conducting renovation, repair, or painting work for compensation in pre-1978 buildings must be trained, certified and use lead-safe work practices. The State of California also requires lead-safe work practices. This includes contractors, remodelers and landlords applying for permits. Disturbing or removing pre-1978 paint without safe work practices can be extremely hazardous to workers, occupants and neighbors and can contaminate the property. Children exposed to lead through unsafe work practices can have slow development and lifelong learning difficulties.
The Tool Kit contains summaries of the RRP rule and related California building codes, posters and brochures you can use in your office, tips for lead-safe work practices, educational materials available for download on our website, lead hazard warning labels, a list of accredited trainers and information about how local governments are implementing the Federal rule.
