Lead-Based Paint Abatement Worker Initial
From Lead Training
The U.S. EPA and U.S. HUD define target housing as any housing in the U.S. constructed before 1978 with a few exceptions. EPA further defines child-occupied facilities as places built before 1978 in which a child six or under in age spends a significant time each week or year. Persons performing lead-based paint abatement in target housing and child-occupied facilities must be accredited. This course is designed to meet the training requirements for U.S. EPA accreditation (40 CFR 745 Subpart L) and for U.S. HUD certification (24 CFR 35).
Although OSHA requires that each employer use trained persons on all construction projects disturbing lead, there is no specific length of training required. While this course would certainly meet the requirements, one of our shorter training courses might be suitable where tasks other than lead-based paint abatement are being performed, such as our HUD-approved lead-safe work practices course.
