Lead Renovation Repair and Painting Rule

Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (LRRP) Refresher Courses

The EPA requires that all certified renovators enroll in a 4-hour refresher class within five years of completing the initial 8-hour course.  With the majority of initial classes being taught during the end of 2009 and through the middle of 2010, thousands of contractors will need to enroll in refresher classes and renew their registration in the coming months to stay in compliance.

Electrical Safety: Testing for Voltage

Testing for voltage after equipment lock-out is a key step to providing electrically safe working conditions. However, testing the equipment used to verify the lack of voltage is often overlooked. Too often, the worker pulls a voltmeter from their back pocket, tool pouch or tool box to perform this important test. This meter may have not been used for days and could have been subjected to any type of abuse during this time.
