Effective April 2010, the Federal Government and the State of Tennessee mandated that contractors working for compensation in homes built before 1978 be trained and use lead-safe work practices.
This Federal Program, referred to as ‘Renovation, Repair and Painting’ (RRP), states that “Common renovation activities can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. 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”.
I am proud to announce that Hugh Nelson II (Kingdom Builders) has fulfilled the requirements of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and has received certification to conduct lead-based paint renovation, repair, and painting activities on structures constructed before 1978.
Certification expires July 20, 2015
