Progressive Insulation & Windows Hosts EPA Lead-Safe Training

Share Article

Both the EPA and California State have enacted laws to protect children, pregnant women and the general public from the harmful impact of lead found in houses built prior to 1978. The law includes the requirement of training through authorized classes, resulting in certification for those who comply. Contractors, day-care providers and property managers who do not comply face extensive penalties.

Any amount of lead is bad for you. There is no safe level.

An authorized EPA Lead-Safe training class will be held, November 12, 2011, from 7:45 am to 5:00 pm at Progressive Insulation & Windows, 9750 Topanga Canyon. Blvd. in Chatsworth. This rare Saturday RRP Training Course includes hands‐on practice, end‐of‐day exam and certification photo ID card.

The EPA's RRP Rule requires any remodeling contractor who works in pre-1978 housing who might disturb painted surfaces to become an EPA Certified Renovator by taking a "Lead Safe Work Practices" RRP class from an EPA accredited training provider.

When lead paint is sanded or scraped or disturbed, microscopic particles of the metal mingle with the dust that is created. That "lead-containing" dust is what can seriously impact people's health, especially children and pregnant women. Any amount of lead is bad for you. There is no safe level.

Fines for violating the RRP Rule can be up to $37,500 per incident. To read more about the RRP Rule go to:
