Lead Paint Resources Are Required By EPA

EPA is now requiring that many of these documents be delivered to a Client that has a home with lead paint present. In addition to mandatory provisions from EPA to hand deliver this information, lead certification compliance requires that that your Clients sign EPA documents stating that they understand the dangers of lead paint and that you have taken the necessary steps to educate them on what can be done to ensure the safest possible techniques. In addition to getting the required lead certified training, proper documentation of the completed work, often times in the form of a comprehensive recap of the critical steps in a lead renovation project, ensures that the RRP standards were followed.

Understand the Importance of EPA Compliance

When reviewing these EPA lead certification documents, it is important to consider them not as an inconvenience but as a tool to better understand the serious health hazards associate with lead paint and the negative effects it can have on a building's occupants. While the EPA RRP regulations revolve around the general concept of protecting children from lead exposure, it can also be extremely pertinent to remember that even adults can experience negative affects when lead is present in the air we breath or surfaces we touch. By educating your colleagues and Clients with these lead certification documents, you will create trust and understanding on why EPA standards are so necessary when dealing with lead paint. These EPA brochures and forms are the result of dozens of years of research and empirical evidence - use them as a tool to ensure the safety of yourself, your workers, and your Clients.
