Do the EPA lead abatement regulations apply to my project?
The Environmental Protection Agency has enacted rules to minimize lead poisoning through lead-safe work practices. Effective April 22, 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. Homeowners should research the EPA regulations to determine any steps necessary to comply. Lead based paints can be harmful to both children and adults, especially when activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition create lead dust and chips. Please see the EPA website for complete information. (http://www.epa.gov/lead/rrp/index.html)
