1.Avoid risk of government fines and civil liability.
Without certification and by not following approved
practices, your company can face
thousands of dollars in fines and put yourself and
your company at risk for lawsuits.
2. Protect your workers and yourself from a health risk:
Dust from renovation, repairs and painting can contaminate an entire home and, if inhaled or ingested, cause permanent damage in children and adults.
“Safety first” goes farther than using safe electrical practices. Many experts in the electrical trade needlessly expose themselves and their customers to lead when holes are cut or doing other electrical work that disturbs painted surfaces.
PROTECTING YOUR FAMILY
The federal rule banned lead from residential paint in 1978. In 2008, the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency passed the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule. The federal rule was enacted to protect young children from being exposed to lead-based paint hazards that can be created during renovation activities. The federal rule has been incorporated into Wis. Admin. Code ch. DHS 163(link is external) and is called the Wisconsin Lead-Safe Renovation Rule.
