Here at Sigura Pro Painting we take the EPAs guidelines very seriously, which is why we take great pride in our EPA & DHS certifications. Another aspect of painting that we take very seriously is the CalOSHA lead protocol. Please feel free to request an EPA Renovate Right Pamphlet to learn more about this important topic.
We are pleased to follow all of the guidelines set forth to protect our clients.
“EPA’s 2008 Lead-Based Paint Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule (as amended in 2010 and 2011), aims to protect the public from lead-based paint hazards associated with renovation, repair and painting activities. These activities can create hazardous lead dust when surfaces with lead paint, even from many decades ago, are disturbed. The rule requires workers to be certified and trained in the use of lead-safe work practices, and requires renovation, repair, and painting firms to be EPA-certified. These requirements became fully effective April 22, 2010.”
On April 22, 2010 a new EPA Rule went into effect stating that “contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.” (from the EPA website.)
