Lead Safe Work Practices
Many older structures may still hide lead-based paint hazards in woodwork, walls and exterior surfaces. Unsuspecting occupants remain susceptible to exposure from this toxic substance. Structures including bridges and water towers to apartments, offices and private homes built before 1978 may still be a danger.
Left unaddressed, building owners and facility managers are at risk for fines and other legal action from exposure related health problems and/or environmental impact due to improper removal techniques. In fact, a new EPA ruling, RRP rule (Renovation, Repair and Painting) stipulates that all painting firms must be certified and each worker must be trained for lead-safe work practices. This regulation covers work in apartments, condominiums, residences, schools, daycare centers, and other child occupied facilities.
Most painting contractors are just not qualified to take on the responsibilities stipulated in a lead paint abatement project. Alpine Painting has over 35-years of experience and a stellar reputation for performance in lead remediation work.
