On January 1, 2011, contractors working in pre-1978 homes and child-occupied facilities must be certified and use lead-safe work practices during renovations. The penalty for noncompliance is $37,000 per day, per violation and possible jail time.

Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, sawing, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. Under the rule, beginning in April 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

Contractors and sub-contractors receiving payment for any lead-related renovation must be both a Certified Firm and a Certified Renovator (complete 8-hour training course). Both are valid for a period of 5 years after which re-certification is required.

m.a.c. Paran provides both initial and refresher training at our facilities in Cincinnati and Cleveland.  Or we can travel to any state to perform the training at a location that better suites your needs.  m.a.c. Paran also provides training for many other services.  Please follow the training links here on the website for more details.
