Lead-Safe Work Practices
From Lead Training
Paint in most residences ('target housing') and child-occupied facilities built before 1978 are presumed by U.S. EPA and U.S. HUD to contain lead-based paint (LBP). Workers conducting interim controls or maintenance (paint stabilization, renovation, remodeling) disturbing paint in such facilities must use lead-safe work practices. For work done in federally-owned, federally-assisted housing, such training must be HUD-approved. This half-day course provides you with a HUD-approved introduction to the hazards of lead and accepted procedures for working safely around it. In addition, it introduces you to a valuable Field Guide containing step-by-step instructions on how to perform a number of common renovation procedures safely on lead-painted surfaces.
