You’re probably aware of lead concerns with paint and plumbing, but did you know it’s a concern in electrical work, too?
The Lead, Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule
Reducing lead levels has been one of the most successful health goals, with anover 90% decline in blood lead levels since the mid-1970s. But the research that has accompanied it has discovered that even small amounts of lead can be harmful, especially to young children. Even ordinary maintenance and renovation activities can create harmful lead dust. That’s why The Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule establishes requirements for firms and individuals performing work that disturbs certain types of painted surfaces.
Who the Rule Affects
Part of the Rule includes education and training that leads to a certification, and that certification is now mandatory for any company or individual who performs work that disturbs paint in housing and child-occupied facilities built before 1978. It includes residential property owners and managers, general contractors, and specialty contractors, including painters, plumbers, carpenters and electricians.
