Lead-Safety Training for Renovation Contractors
Mandate: Renovation Contractors Must Be Trained and Certified

Federal law requires that remodeling contractors be trained and certified in lead-safety practices before disturbing lead paint in pre-1978 homes, child-care facilities and schools. Failure to do so can lead to fines, legal liabilities and loss of work.
