NOTICE New EPA Lead Enforcement Delayed

(1/2) > >>

jQuery(document).ready(function($){jQuery(function(){jQuery("#msg_23800").css("overflow-y", "hidden");});});The EPA has extended the ENFORCEMENT deadline for required "Lead Safe" training to Oct. 1, 2010 for Firms and Dec. 31, 2010 for individual workers. After those deadlines the EPA WILL begin enforcement of the Rule. Enforcement can trigger fines of over $30,000.00 per violation, if you plan to remain in the painting business I strongly recommend that you use the time to get certified, every indication is that the EPA's claws will come out after these deadlines.


jQuery(document).ready(function($){jQuery(function(){jQuery("#msg_23817").css("overflow-y", "hidden");});});I'm interested in seeing the mass of bodies the Paint Gestapo will be collecting, and the ensuing backlash against every government intrusion inflicted upon us.

jQuery(document).ready(function($){jQuery(function(){jQuery("#msg_23823").css("overflow-y", "hidden");});});Unlike EPA regulations in the past, which have gone largely ignored, I believe that the EPA is serious about the enforcement of this one. As with most governmental regulations, I agree that it lacks common sense in a lot of areas, like the removal of the waiver option for homes that are not occupied by children, and the unbelievable ( pre 1978) criteria that triggers the requirement and does not require the presence of lead paint or the testing for lead paint. Unfortunately the reality is that the EPA is poised to make compliance the only feasible option for most painting contractors and renovators.

jQuery(document).ready(function($){jQuery(function(){jQuery("#msg_25263").css("overflow-y", "hidden");});});We recently were accredited from the EPA to offer the RRP Lead Safe Training Course.  In the process we had many conversations with the local office & the DC office of the EPA.  We were told that they have worked through the "bugs" from the issuance of the law, and now have a handle on things.  As such, they gave us a heads up to expect to see many more fines issued for non-compliance of the law.  They feel that they need to drive the point home that it is a mandatory law to be followed, not a suggestion.

We plan to begin offering the training course in the Philadelphia area, with the first class scheduled for Saturday, June 25th.
