EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm in Charlottesville
SERVPRO of Charlottesville is an EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm.
So what does it mean to be an EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm?
The Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule establishes requirements for firms and individuals performing renovations, and affects contractors, property managers, and others who disturb painted surfaces. It applies to work in houses, apartments, and child-occupied facilities (such as schools and day-care centers) built before 1978. It includes pre-renovation education requirements as well as training, firm certification, and work practice requirements.
Our line of work often has our crews coming into contact with lead while working in residential or commercial buildings that were built before 1978. Because of this, we make it a priority to be a certified firm as well as train our team members on lead safety. Listed before are the responsibilities that our franchise has committed to as a Lead-Safe Certified firm:
Firms performing renovations must ensure that:
- All individuals performing activities that disturb painted surfaces on behalf of the firm are either certified renovators or have been trained by a certified renovator.
- A certified renovator is assigned to each renovation and performs all of the certified renovator responsibilities.
- All renovations performed by the firm are performed in accordance with the work practice standards of the Lead-Based Paint Renovation, Repair, and Painting Program.
- Pre-renovation education and lead pamphlet distribution requirements of the Lead-Based Paint Renovation, Repair, and Painting Program are performed.
- The program’s recordkeeping requirements are met.
