Who should attend this workshop?
This one day course will consist of the 8 Hour Certification training based on the EPA Lead Safety for Renovation, Repair and Painting.
This will meet the standards and requirements of the EPA regulations that went into effect in October of 2011 and in July 2010 in MA and supersedes the EPA . Anyone who could be responsible for removing or modifying painted surfaces that disturb more than 6 sf. (interior) or 20 sf. (exterior) throughout an entire property will need to have this certification. Each company will be required to have at least one certified technician on-site by law. This includes work done in residential homes, apartments, child-care facilities, or schools built pre-1978. For those in violation of this law there is tremendous liability and penalties that will be enforced. These individuals would include property owners/managers, maintenance providers, contractors, HVAC, plumbers, and other specialty tradesman. If there are multiple contractors on a project that triggers the RRP law you will still need to be a certified firm as well have at least one certified technician on-site.
