EPA Lead Safe
In April 2010, new Environmental Protection Agency rules go into effect requiring that contractors "take the proper precautions to work lead-safe, including minimizing the dust, containing the work area, and conducting a thorough cleanup to reduce the potential exposure associated with disturbing lead-based paint."
Under the new lead-safe rules, contractors should take a lead-safe work practices training, and then be certified. On the job site, contractors must take several steps, including: provide a copy of EPA training certificate to the customer, tell the customer about the lead-safe methods, ask the customer for any previous lead test results, and keep records that show employee training in lead-safe practices, and the use of the practices on the job, according to the EPA. Contractors must apply for certification through the EPA.
