Federal Law requires that individuals receive certain information before renovating more than two square feet of painted surfaces in housing, child care facilities and schools built before 1978.

Homeowners and tenants:
renovators must give you this information before starting work.

Child Care facilities, including preschools and kindergarden classrooms, and the families of children under the age of six that attend those facilities: 
renovators must provide a copy of this information to child-care facilities and general renovation information to families whose children attend those facilities.

Federal Law requires contractors that disturb lead-based pain in homes, child care facilities and schools, built before 1978 to be certified and follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

This law applies to ALL contractors, plumbers, painters, electricians, HVAC renovators and home owners renovating their own investment property.

You must take the 8 hour LSRS (Lead Safe Renovation Supervisor Class) course and pass a test. You will then receive a Lead Safe renovator certificate that must be on location at job sites. Violation of the new LSRS laws can trigger fines of up to $37,500 and jail time. Don't take the chance. Get certified NOW. 

Massachusetts Laws have adopted its own RRP Lead Safe Renovation law on July 9, 2010. The Massachusetts Law is similar to the Federal EPA-HUD Lead Safe Renovator law although, there are some differences. Click the MA RRP Link below for a full view of the MA law 454 CMR 22.00 to 22.92. 

“A few differences between Federal LSRS and MA RRP Laws” 

Massachusetts Law states that the Lead Safe Renovation Supervisor must be present at the job site while work is in progress, The EPA-HUD law allows the renovation supervisor to leave the job site but must be available by phone. 

The Massachusetts Law states that the lead safe Renovation Supervisor can use tarps instead of plastic on the outside of building. The EPA-HUD law only allows plastic. Massachusetts Lead Safe Renovation Law requires the work area shall be sufficiently isolated from adjacent interior spaces of the dwelling by plastic sheathing or other appropriate impermeable material, to prevent contamination to adjacent areas. Federal EPA-HUD RRP Law requires plastic on the floor only and does not address the absolute need to isolate the adjacent areas. 

Good news: The New MA RRP Law allows the Lead Safe Renovation Supervisor
to use the EPA- MA approved Lead test kits to determine the presence of lead paint at the renovation work site.
