EPA LEAD RENOVATION REPAIR AND PAINTING (RRP) TRAINING
The objective of EPA’s Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule is to minimize exposure from lead-based paint dust during renovation, repair, or painting activities in pre-1978 residences, schools, and childcare facilities. Lead paint was used in more than 38,000,000 homes prior to its ban for residential use in 1978. Research has shown that children exposed to lead dust resulting from the disturbance of lead paint surfaces during these activities are at a significantly greater risk of developing blood lead poisoning. The RRP rule also minimizes exposure to older children and adults who are also adversely impacted by lead-based paint dust exposure.
The RRP Training Program is designed to reduce lead contamination by training and certifying contractors in lead-safe work practices. Additionally, EPA encourages consumers to choose certified contractors to perform renovation projects. Given that lead poisoning can cause a wide range of physical, intellectual, emotional, and behavioral issues with societal and financial impacts, this program is prevention-based and cost-effective.

In a world struggling with environmental challenges, adopting a zero waste to landfill approach is a significant step towards a more sustainable future. The idea behind this concept is simple but powerful: minimize the waste you produce to the extent that nothing ends up in a landfill. While achieving zero waste might seem like an impossible goal, it is an essential endeavor that individuals, communities and businesses can work towards.
