LEAD PAINT LAW
DO YOU KNOW THE LAW?
The Toxic Substances Control Act ("TSCA"), which contains a rule known as the Pre-Renovation Lead Information Rule ("PLIR”), requires contractors doing renovation work to provide the Environmental Protection Agency's ("EPA") PLIR pamphlet, "Renovate Right: Important Lead Hazard Information for Families, Child Care Providers and Schools," to the owner (and any tenant) of pre-1978 housing where work is being done. This disclosure requirement covers most residential and commercial home improvement jobs, including all window replacement work - contrary to what many attorneys believe.
Non-compliance can mean penalties ranging up to $37,500 per violation, per day. One mid-size contractor is currently faced with over $10 million in fines from the EPA. Surprised you never heard of this? Don’t be! Most attorneys do not understand our industry, and have no idea how to represent a remodeler or home improvement contractor. If you think otherwise, just call your attorney and see if they even know what you are talking about! When you are ready to stop wasting time and money, and risking your business, call us!
DO YOU KNOW WHAT'S COMING?
Effective April 22, 2010 new laws are going to require that contractors
become responsible for, and liable for, taking care of lead paint problems
on a job site!
You'll need to undergo training and certification. With strict enforcement by both the states and EPA, you will need to have your people trained in the use of lead-safe work practices, and your company will have to be certified with the EPA! Our industry experts are in contact on a regular basis with the EPA, so we can track and advise our clients as soon any revisions are made to the laws.
