Overview of Lead-Safe Renovation Regulations
(Source: MA DLS)
Common renovation activities such as sanding, sawing, grinding, scraping or demolishing components with lead-painted surfaces can produce exposures to lead dust and paint chips that can be harmful to adults and children. To help protect against this risk, the U.S.EPA issued the Lead Safe Renovation Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule, 40 CFR 745, Subpart E in April 2010. The RRP Rule, which is currently in effect nationwide, applies to renovation, repair and painting work conducted for a fee that disturbs more than threshold amounts of lead paint in pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities. Under the RRP Rule, contractors who perform such work must receive Firm Certification from the EPA, employ at least one job supervisor who has completed the 1-day lead safety training from approved trainers, and follow specified lead-safe work practices.
On July 9, 2010, the Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards (DLS) received EPA authorization to administer its own standards for Lead Safe Renovation work in target housing and child-occupied facilities, in lieu of the EPA RRP Rule in Massachusetts.

LeadSMART Training is different. We're contractors training contractors for EPA certification in Lead-Safe Renovating. We are renovators, remodelers, painters...we've been in the field, on the job and know how important this stuff is to protect yourself, your family, your customers and your business. We've been using these techniques on our own jobs for ten years. We can show you how to work this law on your sites without losing everything you have worked so hard for. A speck of lead dust smaller than your small finger nail can poison a child... your child!
