Lead Safe Certification

New Government Mandates. New EPA regulations  mandate that all renovation and repair contractors who disrupt more than six square feet of lead paint, replace windows or do any demolition, are required to become Lead-Safe Certified.

Additional regulations that went into effect  January 1, 2011 require contractors, remodelers, inspectors or other professionals who work on pre- 1978 homes to be trained and certified in lead inspection and removal.


If found in violation of these new laws, you could face up to $37,000 in fines. Plus, you put the health of
 yourself, your workers and your customers at risk, which could result in lawsuits.


If you are a lead paint abatement contractor and want to do renovations, you still have requirements to follow with this new regulation. You are not officially certified unless you take a RRP accredited course, which have only been offered since early 2009. To learn about
the new renovation program, click here

Our intention is to continue teaching this program and the subsequent refresher courses so that no professional will be “caught” in non-compliance.
