On Friday, December 28, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (EST), the Environmental Solutions Association in Williamsport, PA will present an eight hour EPA approved Lead Safe Course. If you work in homes, child-care facilities, or schools built before 1978, you must certify in EPA Lead Safe Practices. As of April 22nd, 2010, the work you are performing may be regulated by the EPA. Violations of this new law can be up to $37,500 and imprisonment if you have not taken a class by Dec. 31st, 2010.
Federal law now requires that painting in housing (residence, apartments, and condominium), child care facilities and schools built before 1978 must take and successfully complete an approved eight hour EPA Certified Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) course.
The laws are even more restrictive if the properties you work on receive federal funding (i.e. Section 8) or are Housing and Urban Development (HUD) properties. There are excessive fines, civil penalties, and felony convictions associated with this new regulation.
By taking this EPA certified course you will have a full understanding of lead safe practices that are required in pre-1978 buildings. At the successful completion of the course you will receive your EPA recognized lead RRP certificationthat is good for 5 years.
