Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children.
To protect against this risk, on April 22, 2008, EPA issued the Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule. It requires that firms (which include public and private entities, landlords, self-employed persons, etc) performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities and schools be certified by EPA and that they use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers to follow lead-safe work practices.
Individuals can become certified renovators by taking an eight-hour training course from ConTrax, LLC, an EPA-approved training provider. ConTrax, LLC offer the courses in open and closed enrollments at one of our training centers, as well as client specific class held at your location, worldwide! Have a large group to train? Ask how we can can offer large class tuition rates as as low as $99.00 per student. Email or call us for more details.
"Your training was excellent! I learned more about lead-paint in just one day with your instructors than I learned in 35 years in the trade."
