Federal regulations by HUD & EPA require anyone that disturbs lead-based paint in homes, schools and child care facilities built before 1978 to be certified and follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.
Certification is required by Residential Renovators, Painters, Plumbers, HVAC Professionals, Window, Siding & Guttering Professionals, Demo Contractors, Foundation Repair Specialists, Insurance Restoration Contractors, Government & Historical Restoration Specialists and more.
Federal law requires that a “Certified Renovator” be assigned to each job, and that all involved individuals are trained in the use of lead safe practices.
Federal law also requires that all renovation, repair and painting firms (including sole proprietorships) working in housing, or facilities where children are routinely present, which were built before 1978, to be certified. This can be done by completing the application (obtained online or from the SAHBA office) and submitting it with a fee of $300 to the EPA.
This federal law went in to effect on April 10, 2010. Violations could result in fees up to $37,500.
This training is being funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 5 Office in Chicago, IL.
