This year’s already bringing some exciting news to our industry.
In December the EPA announced a change affecting lead activities; the pending final rule will lower the clearance levels for lead abatement projects. This is a long time past due, as the CDC lowered the blood lead level of concern in 2012 and then in 2017 HUD lowered the clearance levels and dust lead hazard standards for two specific grants. This was followed by a 2019 change (effective January 2, 2020) from EPA lowering the dust lead hazard standards to match the HUD levels. Leaving the clearance standards at the original levels added a lot of confusion.
CHC Training is excited to see an alignment in standards from both the EPA and HUD, which will aid in the public staying below CDC blood lead level of concern.
We are seeing some recent movements in large scale enforcement.
In other news, “Home Depot to pay $20M fine for lead paint violations” as reported by Fox Business. We continue to see that training and compliance are key to reducing risk and liability. Just one more reason I’m proud to stand behind our philosophy to go beyond the basics. One of the violations charged to Home Depot was the failure to adequately train their contractors and employees.
