EPA's Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule
The EPA Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule is the most important Federal lead regulation since the HUD Lead-Safe Housing Rule a decade ago. It has the potential to ensure the widespread use of lead-safe work practices in homes and child-occupied facilities and may be extended to public and commercial buildings in the future. EPA Certified Renovator Initial Course: This EPA accredited course (through EnviroEd) will lead to the EPA Certified Renovator discipline certification, which will be valid for five years from the date of successful completion of the course. The audience for this course includes renovators, remodelers, painters, maintenance personnel, and any other workers removing or modifying painted surfaces in pre-1978 housing and in pre-1978 child-occupied facilities. Students will learn how to comply with the EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule and the HUD Lead Safe Housing Rule. Students will also learn how to work safely with lead-based paint, and how to perform lead-safe work practices safely and effectively during renovation, repair and painting projects.
