Lead-Safe Renovation Certification Training for Massachusetts Contractors

The Department of Labor and Standards requires that contractor firms must apply for a license as a Lead Safe Renovator Supervisor and have at least one certified Lead Safe Renovator Supervisor on the job site when disturbing painted surfaces on pre-1978 housing and child occupied facilities.

Enforcement in Massachusetts is well underway and fines are very high. See the full list of Mass companies fined by DLS. The amounts may surprise you!

Class size is limited, so register today!

Who must be Certified; remodelers, home improvement contractors, painters, electricians, plumbers, handyman, roofers, weatherization contractors, maintenance personnel for property management firms and housing authorities. Also anyone who owns or manages pre 1978 residential properties and contracts for repairs such as landlords, realtors, banks and institutions.

The rule of thumb requiring certification; any of the above who disturb painted surfaces on residential pre 1978 properties for compensation over 6 square ft. per room (interior) or 20 square ft. (exterior). You must be RRP trained to offer to work or work on these pre 1978 properties.

This Mass DLS LSRS RRP training is conducted by The Contractor Coaching Partnership, Inc. This training includes the more stringent Mass requirements that are different than the EPA Initial Course. Unlike the EPA, Mass requires contractors to be compliant with OSHA Lead in Construction, Medical Monitoring and Respiratory Standards. We will explain what you must do to qualify for your Mass Lead License.

In this training you will:

Learn how to comply with the Mass DLS RRP Rule. This includes the new Mass requirments since Mass took over the law on 7/9/2010.

Receive 6 Hours of class training and 2 hours of hands-on training.

Receive your Lead Safe Renovation Supervisor certification after you successfully fulfill the requirements of the course.

This training certifies you for EPA regulated states like NH, VT, ME, CT and New York.

This class will satisfy the training and certification requirements in place by the Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards (DLS), "Lead Safe Renovator-Supervisor," as well as the US EPA RRP "Certified Renovator" and each jurisdiction's applicable rules.

    “I am writing to thank you for the great service and training you provide. This is not something I do that often, but being a contractor for over 28 years and receiving letters of appreciation from my customers for the good work that we do, makes it worth the effort.

    There are many lumber yards out there to choose from, but what moved me to write this letter is how National Lumber works to keep its customers (contractors) educated from the new EPA RRP lead paint rules, OSHA safety classes, Energy Star programs, business and legal programs.

    To top it off, as a contractor, I receive all these programs plus great service and competitive pricing.

    Thanks again for all the work you do. Doing business with you is a pleasure.”
