California Paints to Host Lead Classes

Monday, January 18, 2010

Comment | More

California Paints will host courses at its Massachusetts headquarters to train and certify contractors for the forthcoming federal Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rule (40 CRF 745), which takes effect in April, requires firms and renovators to be EPA-certified when disturbing pre-1978 homes or child-occupied facilities based on the possibility of lead exposure. Violation of this regulation may result in fines up to $32,500 and/or possible imprisonment.

The EPA certified renovator training will be provided by the Institute for Environmental Education (IEE), New England's largest environmental trainer. IEE is fully accredited by the US EPA to conduct this eight-hour course.

Training and certification courses will be held at the California Products Corporation headquarters in Andover, Mass., beginning Feb. 2. The class includes an overview of lead exposure, methods for protecting employees and customers, hands-on demonstrations, cleaning activities, and steps for record keeping.

A Final Rule 40 CRF 745 certificate, valid for five years, will be awarded upon completion of the course.

 "California Paints is committed to providing educational information to our paint and contractor customers," says Maryellen Mantyla, director of marketing. "Working with IEE to offer the latest EPA certification to renovators shows our dedication to being a resource to the professional applicator."

By April 22, renovation firms must be certified by the EPA and must have one or more certified renovators. Renovations conducted for compensation must be performed by certified firms using certified renovators. This rule includes landlords and their employees.

The course was developed by the EPA along with the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to educate and train contractors on how to work safely in facilities with lead-based paint.
