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.

The Significant Differences Between MSHA and OSHA Noise Standards

Both the OSHA and MSHA Noise Standards utilize a two-number system:  a 90 dBA TWA Permissible Exposure Level (PEL) and an 85 dBA TWA Action Level.  Exposures in excess of the PEL require engineering and/or administrative noise control as well as hearing protection.  Exposures at and above 85 dBA TWA require inclusion in an effective hearing conservation program (HCP) and providing workers the option to wear hearing protection.
