Jeffrey Havelin, PE
The purpose of this course is to help reduce lead exposure when conducting home renovation and remodeling activities.
This course provides step-by-step instructions and illustrations, which explain and show what you need to do to protect you and your clients if you are working in older housing that could contain lead paint. The listed procedures will reduce the amount of lead dust inhaled and explain how to clean up lead dust once the project is completed.
Most homes built before 1978 contain some lead-based paint. Lead- based paint is more common and was used more extensively in homes built before 1950. This course will alert you to the hazards involved in handling lead-based painted surfaces and will provide useful methods you can use to reduce or eliminate exposures to lead.
This course is not intended for use as a guide for lead-based paint abatement procedures. Unlike remodeling and renovation activities, abatement is a process used only to address lead-based paint hazards. EPA has promulgated regulations for certification and training of professionals engaged in lead abatement.
This course is based entirely on “Reducing Lead Hazards When Remodeling your Home” EPA publication - EPA 747-K-97-001. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials. You will be quizzed on the attached document in its entirety.
