Lead-Safe Work Classes
Under Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules, anyone conducting renovation, repair or painting work for compensation in a pre-1978 residence, childcare facility or school must be trained, EPA certified, and use lead-safe work practices. This rule includes rental property owners and property managers. For more information about the EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting rule (RRP) go to www.epa.gov/getleadsafe.
Under State of California law it is a violation for anyone to use work practices that create a lead hazard.
