EPA RRP Lead Safety Course

This course was developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to train renovation, repair and painting contractors how to work safely in housing with lead-based paint and complies with the EPA’s Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule, and HUD’s Lead Safe Housing Rule. It also meets the new EPA criteria for the policy that takes effect April, 2010. Courses are approved for purposes of certification under Section 402 of TSCA for the respective discipline. This training is required for any contractor involved in any construction activity that will or has the potential to disturb lead based paint. The new EPA rule will directly affect ALL paid renovators who work in pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities, including: renovation contractors, maintenance workers in multi-family housing, painters and other specialty trades. Under the rule, child-occupied facilities are defined as residential, public or com­mercial buildings where children under age six are present on a regular basis. The requirements apply to renovation, repair or painting activities. The rule does not apply to minor maintenance or repair activities where less than six square feet of lead-based paint is disturbed in a room or where less then 20 square feet of lead-based paint is disturbed on the exterior. Window replacement is not minor maintenance or repair. Please visit www.epa.gov/lead/pubs/renovation. htm for specific regulations. Courses scheduled throughout the year • 8 am – 5 pm

Continuing Education Hours: 8.0 (CGP - Green Continuing Education)
