Contact us today to talk about how you can become a Certified Lead Renovator.
Homes that were built before 1978 have a high chance of containing hazardous materials like lead and asbestos. Most of the time, the homeowners won’t even know that these harmful materials are present in their home. But when it comes time for renovations or repairs, these materials often become a problem.
As a home contractor, if you renovate a pre-1978 home, you may disturb lead in the paint, which can be dangerous for you and the homeowners.
At PHS Environmental & Occupational Services, we can help keep you safe from lead dangers with our RRP trainings in Chicago, IL.
Trainings to Protect
Lead often remains undisturbed in paint, which means it provides no immediate threat to homeowners. But when a homeowner or home contractor renovates and disrupts more than 6 square feet of the home’s interior paint or 20 square feet of the paint on the exterior, the lead becomes a threat to those around. Likewise, when someone replaces windows in older homes, the work may disturb lead.
Our RRP and RRPI trainings inform you of the dangers you may face when working around lead, and we also offer certified training on how to handle the situation to prevent lead-related dangers. Our instructors are fully certified and provide excellent courses to make sure you have the knowledge you need to perform renovations and painting services in pre-1978 homes.
