Lead Paint



Lead Paint Maintenance and Repainting Supervisor (VTE700)

This two-day course is designed for those who do work in residential rental properties (built before 1978) in Maryland in order to bring those properties into compliance with the Maryland Lead Risk Reduction Standard. The course is also designed for home improvement contractors who do work involving limited disturbance of lead-based paint while working in those affected rental properties. Topics that will be discussed include information regarding the health effects of exposure to lead, how to protect against those exposures; the techniques for safely working around lead-based paint; clean-up procedures; and OSHA-related health and safety programs. The course includes the Maryland rental property regulations in detail, along with other regulations that may impact the home improvement community. Property owners who wish to either do work that disturbs lead-based paint or to supervise the required procedures for compliance with related Maryland law, must be accredited to this level of supervision. Upon completion, an application must be submitted to the Maryland Department of the Environment with a fee of $125 to complete the accreditation process.

Renovation, Repair and Painting (VTE828)

 

Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children.  To protect against this risk, on April 22, 2008, the Environmental Protection Agency issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices and other actions aimed at preventing lead poisoning. Under the rule, beginning in April 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.
