Lead Safety and Training Requirements

Under State of California law it is a violation for anyone to use work practices that create a lead hazard.

Under the Environmental Protection Agency's Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule, for most projects that disturb paint where the person is working for compensation in a pre-1978 residence, lead-safe work practices must be used, and an EPA Lead Certified Renovator must oversee the work. This rule also applies to childcare facilities or schools where children under six spend time. This rule includes rental property owners and property managers and their employees doing work on their own properties. For more information about the EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting rule (RRP) and the type of work it applies to, go to:
