Lead-Safe Renovation, Repair and Painting
EPA and HUD have developed an updated internet training course to instruct renovators, painters, and maintenance personnel on how to work safely in homes with lead-based paint. This training is recommended for all contractors who perform renovation, remodeling, painting, and maintenance work in residential housing built before 1978. The course is interactive with hands-on activities for practicing the skills that workers need to avoid creating lead hazards in the homes where they work. For more information, go to NELAR .
