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.
