Resources for Contractors
If you work on houses or child-occupied structures built before 1978, you have an important responsibility to use lead-safe work practices. And it's not only the safe thing to do, it's the law. Complying with the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule — the national standard for lead-safe work practices — will help you protect yourself, your clients, and your children from the danger of lead poisoning.
