As a contractor, you play a vital role in helping to prevent lead exposure. Traditional renovation work creates lead dust which can cause lead poisoning in children, pregnant people, yourself, other workers and even pets. By following lead-safe work practices you can minimize and contain lead dust, help prevent lead hazards while reducing your liability.
If you are a renovator looking for EPA Certification in RRP methods to ensure that any lead-disturbing construction activities do not create health hazards, please visit the EPA web site for details on training and certification.
