EPA CFR 40 745
The EPA’s Lead Based Paint Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Program Rule for contractors provides guidance to properly address lead based paint hazards associated with renovation, repair, painting and lead abatement activities. The RRP rule affects contractors, property managers and others who disturb known or presumed lead-based paint during renovation. 

Workers should protect themselves.
Without the right safety products, workers may ingest or inhale lead from the job and may risk bringing lead from the work site home to their families. Lakeland’s Lead-Based Paint Protective Kit gives you the protective clothing you need. The kit contains safety products recommended by the EPA to help comply with the RRP rule. 

  • Be careful not to track lead dust around your home.
  • Change work clothes and shoes right after you leave the work area.
  • Wash work clothes separately from your family's laundry.
  • Shower and wash your hair as soon as possible.

Keep the Area Clean
