PDH UNITS: 3
This course describes lead-safe work practices associated with renovation of homes or child-occupied facilities built before 1978. Lead-safe work practices are a group of techniques that reduce the amount of dust produced by renovation activities. When used correctly, these practices make the work area safer for workers and the home safer for residents after renovation is complete. The course provides a practical, seven-step approach that covers all phases of renovation involving lead-based paint.
