EPA Educational Discussion on Lead-Based Paint Rules and How They Apply to Painting Contractors

EPA’s Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP Rule) requires that firms performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and pre-schools built before 1978 have their firm certified by EPA (or an EPA authorized state), use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers and follow lead-safe work practices. As a contractor, you play a critical role in helping to prevent lead exposure. Ordinary renovation and maintenance activities can create toxic lead dust that can harm your customers, workers, and even yourself. But by following lead-safe work practices, you can prevent lead hazards.
This discussion will cover:
  • The hazards of Lead-based paint poisoning
  • Disclosure requirements for people selling or leasing housing that may contain lead paint
  • Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule: certification requirements, work practice standards, and recordkeeping requirements
Kim Farnham has been working for the EPA since 2000, and with the lead-based paint program since 2011. She is the regional subject matter expert point-of-contact and program coordinator for implementation and enforcement of the Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP Rule), and the Lead-based Paint Activities Rule. Ms. Farnham is responsible for compliance and enforcement, which involves evaluating and securing compliance with environmental laws and programs through self-assessments, audits, inspections, investigations, and enforcement and corrective action activities.
