EPA Rejects Additional RRP Compliance Rule for Paint Testing

The Environmental Protection Agency announced Friday that they have rejected a proposed ruling to add additional lead paint testing requirements to the Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule. The proposed rule would have required contractors to take extra steps to demonstrate that lead paint dust in the work area was below regulatory levels. These extra steps include mandatory dust wipe testing and additional clearance requirements. The rule was widely rejected by contractors as an unnecessary extra expense.
Although contractors do not have to comply with these additional regulations, the RRP Rule is still being enforced. Builders and remodelers must contain hazardous lead paint dust and protect workers from lead inhalation. Builders Site Protection has dust barriers, personal protection, and the Lead Ready™ containment kit that will guide contractors through the process and help them maintain full compliance every step of the way. For more detailed information, call Heather or Pat at 866-788-6886 or visit the Builders Site Protection website at www.buildsitepro.com.

Builders Site Protection Protecting the Federal Courthouse in Downtown San Diego

Builders Site Protection has begun supplying surface protection products to the general contractor building the brand new San Diego courthouse downtown. The window mullions are being protected by Builders Site Protection’s threshold tape, which is a thick, durable, UV-resistant tape that can be used for all kinds of surfaces. The $361 million dollar federal courthouse has recently been honored as one of the US government’s best new federal buildings. The courthouse was designed by Richard Meiers and Partners and is expected to open in 2012.

Builders Site Protection is excited to help the GC protect the valuable finishes of the courthouse and looks forward to supplying them with much more surface protection as the project progresses.
