Builders Site Protection Helps Customers with Lead Abatement Regulations

New Lead Abatement Rules for Contractors: The Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule

Beginning on April 22nd 2010, contractors performing work that disturbs lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must:
  • Be EPA certified
    • To become certified, contractors must submit an application and fee payment to the EPA
    • Firms must have one or more ‘certified renovators’ assigned to jobs where lead-based paint is disturbed. To become certified, a renovator must successfully complete an EPA or State-approved training course
    • All renovation workers must be trained to use lead safe work practices either on-the-job by a certified renovator, or by becoming certified renovators themselves
  • Follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination
    • Contain the work area
      • The RRP rule requires that the work area be protected by plastic sheeting that extends a minimum of six feet in all directions from the location where the pain will be disturbed.
    • Minimize dust
      • Close and cover air vents in the working area
      • Use floor protection to prevent dust spread and put all tools and supplies on protective sheeting before you begin work
    • Protect yourself
      • Wear protective clothing such as disposable shoe covers, gloves, safety goggles, and a painters hat to protect yourself from exposure to dust and debris
    • Clean up thoroughly
