If you are a contractor or property manager, enrolling in lead certification courses is a crucial step in protecting your clients, your firm, your workers, and yourself.
Becoming certified follows the Environmental Protection Agency’s Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule, which states that if you are paid to perform renovation, repair, or painting work in houses built before 1978, you must be trained to do so.
This rule is aimed towards the use of safe practices and other actions meant to prevent lead poisoning. As lead can be found in dust, paint, water, and soil in or surrounding a house, it is a contractor’s job to become educated on the proper renovation techniques along with necessary precautions to take if lead-based paint is found in the building.
Whether you are in charge of any contracting company, partnership, corporation, or sole proprietorship, or you work on your own, lead renovator training is an important part of keeping your business afloat. In fact, performing work on any sort of property where there is lead when you don’t have this certification could result in fines of up to $37,500 per day per infraction.
In order to become certified, you must take a lead renovator certification initial course. For those who have already gone through the lead renovator training once, renovator model refresher training is necessary to renew this certification. To conduct testing for renovation projects that required lead dust clearance to be performed, you must take a lead dust sampling technician model initial certification course.
