The New EPA Lead: Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule


The EPA has ruled that “Dust from renovations, repairs, and surface preparation during painting activities creates potential lead hazards when lead-based paint is disturbed and lead-safe work practices are not used.” The EPA now requires certification for renovation firms, and training and certification for renovators to prevent lead poisoning resulting from unsafe renovation practices.
