The ABC’s of the RRP: A General Overview of the EPA’s New Lead Rule and Best Cleaning Practices

On April 22, 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency’s Lead RRP (40 CFR, Part 745, Subpart E) went into effect. The new rule requires contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 to be certified and follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. Although the EPA recently extended the enforcement deadline until October 1st, contractors are enrolling in certification courses across the country to learn about lead safe work practices and the tools needed to meet the new standard.

This interactive webinar will include general information regarding the RRP and discuss the recommended best practices to keep lead dust at a minimum during and after the renovation project. The webinar will also highlight some popular tools recommended by the EPA, with a special focus on HEPA Filter vacuum cleaners.
