The rule affects paid renovators who work in pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities, including:
Renovation contractors Maintenance workers in multi-family housing Painters and other specialty trades.
Under the rule, child-occupied facilities are defined as residential, public or commercial buildings where children under age six are present on a regular basis. The requirements apply to renovation, repair or painting activities. The rule generally does not apply to minor maintenance or repair activities where less than six square feet of lead-based paint is disturbed in a room or where less then 20 square feet of lead-based paint is disturbed on the exterior, but this does not include window replacement, demolition, or prohibited practices.
The Certified Lead Renovator class is a one day training program meeting all EPA requirements for contractors, property owners or managers and maintenance personnel who are involved in any activity that has the potential to disturb lead based paint.
The following topics will be covered:
► Lead Dust Hazards ► EPA Regulations, Violations and Fines ► Prep Work ► Dust Containment ► Clean-Up of Work Site ► Post-Work Inspecting ► Record Keeping ► Training Non-Certified Workers ► Final Exam
The EPA requires that specific forms be used for notifying residents, home owners and other interested parties and documenting testing procedures, test kit verification, worker training and other aspects of lead-safe work practices.
The basic layouts of the forms are included in the RRP Certified Renovator Class Manual, however you will have to create them for your own business. These forms are available for download in both pdf and word format. A complete library of forms can be downloaded for $129 or $99 for our training graduates.
The following booklets, brochures and documents are available to be downloaded at no charge.
