Homes and other buildings built before 1978 are likely to contain lead-based paint. Federal law requires that if you or someone on your staff is conducting repairs or home improvements, your firm must be Lead-Safe Certified and your staff trained in lead-safe work practices. If not, you could face tens of thousands of dollars in fines. Plus, you put the health of yourself, your workers, and tenants at risk, which could result in lawsuits. EBRHA’s RRP course teaches you the dangers associated with lead paint and how to remain safe when exposed to or handling lead paint.

EBRHA’s RRP course meets EPA and HUD requirements for lead-safe work practices training under the RRP Rule. Completing this training demonstrates your company’s compliance to prospective clients and can be a marketing advantage that distinguishes your company from the competition. There is an exam at the end of the course and students must pass at 70%.
