It requires all contractors, rental property owners/managers and others who work in pre-1978 housing who might disturb painted surfaces to become Lead Certified Renovators by taking a one-day certified course about using “Lead Safe Work Practices” on the job.

Contractors who work in pre-1978 housing and who might disturb painted surfaces while doing plumbing, electrical, drywall, painting, tile, window replacement, landscaping, repairs, construction, renovation, remodeling, HVAC, demolition, plus many, other jobs. The RRP rule applies to rental property owners who do their own repairs, people who work for rental property owners, schools, and day care providers as well as non-profits and government agencies.
