Safety Series: Initial Lead Renovator Certification
The EPA requires Certified Renovators take an initial lead renovator 8-hour class as part of the lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule. This Home Builders Association of the Sioux Empire educational class will be presented with an EPA-Certified Trainer.
The RRP rule affects contractors, property managers and others who disturb known or presumed lead-based paint during renovation. The term renovation covers all activities done for compensation that disturb painted surfaces including most repair, remodeling and maintenance activities, such as window replacement, weatherization and demolition. The RRP rule applies to all renovation work performed in residential houses, apartments and child-occupied facilities such as schools and day-care centers built before 1978.
