Frequently Asked Questions
Who must be Lead-Safe Certified?
All firms that conduct lead renovation, repair and painting activities must be lead certified by the EPA under the lead RRP Rule. This includes any firm that receives compensation to conduct work that disturbs lead paint in pre-1978 residential properties and child-occupied facilities (e.g. daycares, elementary schools, pre-schools). This may include residential property owners and managers, maintenance staff, contractors, renovators, remodelers, carpenters painters, plumbers, electricians, roofers, siders and window installers.
Where is lead paint found and why does it matter?
It is estimated that lead paint was used in more than 38 million residential properties built prior 1978. Lead paint can form toxic dust when it is disturbed during normal home repair activity. The EPA Lead RRP Rule is an effort to protect the public from lead poisoning, especially children under the age of six, associated with renovation, repair and painting activities. These types of activities can create hazardous lead dust when surfaces with lead paint and coated surfaces are disturbed. The RRP Rule requires workers to receive lead certification training to become lead certified renovators.
What are the EPA certification requirements?
Contractors are required to assign at least one lead certified renovator to each lead renovation project. Lead renovators are certified upon completion of an EPA accredited renovator lead training course. The initial EPA lead certification training is 8 hours in length, and the lead certification is good for 5 years from the date of lead certification course completion. State authorized lead certification programs may vary. To maintain their lead certification a certified renovator must complete a refresher lead certification training course prior to the expiration of their current lead certification. Note: The 4 hour refresher lead certification training course or the 8 hour initial lead certification training course can be used to recertify. If their lead certification expires, then the 8 hour lead certification training course must be taken again to regain their lead certification.
How can a firm comply with the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Program?
A firm that would like to become lead certified to perform lead renovation, repair and painting activity must submit an application to the EPA. In addition, the firm must attest that it will assign at least one lead certified renovator to each project who has been lead trained by attending an EPA-approved lead certification class, use only individuals who are either lead certified or have received appropriate lead training to perform lead renovation, and follow all lead RRP Rule requirements.
I am the CEO of what used to be a modestly large property management firm. As I near retirement, we've stopped hiring new people to replace those who retire. Recently our Certified Lead Inspector and Certified Renovator employees retired, so I figured I'd take the class myself so we'd be able to keep on top of our much smaller current portfolio of properties. After 30 years of running renovations, sending employees to training and record keeping I thought the class would be a snooze and huge waste of my time. Just be sure, I ordered and read the entire textbook in advance, so I figured there was nothing for me to learn in the class. I was wrong.
The instructor, Robert, was amazingly able to make the dry material interesting and to relate it to real world issues. Just a simple "for instance," he asked "what's in the bottom of your toolbox." At home last night I found at least a quarter inch of dust in my nail bags and bottom of the tool box. As I reached for the air hose to blow it out, I remember what Robert said about using a HEPA vac to clean up the dust instead of blowing air.
And biggest of all, my entire half century of working with lead and lead paints, I learned to think of protective measures in terms of PPE. Robert convincingly showed how environmental and engineering controls can be safer, cheaper and more comfortable.
The class shifted my entire mindset from PPE to not making dust in the first place. This will be useful in just about everything we do, not just lead work. My nailbags are now cleaned and oiled and I found all the little tools that had gotten lost in the debris at the bottom of my tool box.
At one point in the class I thought I'd caught Robert making a mistake or exaggeration. At break I asked him about it. He seemed really interested in my question. He researched and showed me why he was correct.
I highly recommend Robert as an instructor.
10/10 Very informative and responsive to questions.
Instructor did an excellent job. He took his time with each person and explained it until they were able to understand.
I didn't know how harmful it really was to children. Bob did great, taught us the best of his and everyone else's knowledge.
