Recently you may have read in the paper or heard about the “new” lawÂ aimed at protecting children from the health hazards associated withÂ lead based paint. Â The law requires training and sets work practiceÂ standards for Â contractors working in homes that were built prior toÂ 1978.
While the law has received a lot of press recently, as it has become effective as ofÂ the end of April 2010, Â it was proposed in the spring ofÂ 2008, and has generated lots of discussions. If you’re interested in aÂ brief synopsis from theÂ EPA detailing how this regulation effects builders and subcontractors
take a look at this helpful link.
Synergy Building Company is currently in the process of becoming anÂ EPA certified firm to handle renovations effected by theseÂ regulations. Â We support the intentions of this legislation, andÂ believe that all who are potentially impacted by this type ofÂ renovation work, including those doing the work will ultimatelyÂ benefit.
