Online PR News – 14-December-2009 – – Frank R Kennedy & Son Construction are certified lead renovators will meet the new lead paint regulations required for contractors by April 2010.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently passed a lead-based paint regulation called the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule. Effective as of April 2010.

In 2008, the EPA announced new rules for contractors who renovate or repair housing, child-care facilities or schools built before 1978. Under the new rules, contractors must have documented training and lead-safe work practices to reduce potential lead exposure during renovation and repair activities including sanding, cutting, and demolition. The effective date for companies to work in pre-1978 homes and child occupied facilities is April 2010.

The requirements apply to painters, plumbers, electricians, and contractors who could potentially expose children to hazardous lead dust and chips during a renovation. The regulation also requires a contractor to follow specific work practices and meet record keeping requirements.
