Big idea: Any contractor who works on a pre-1978 home or child-occupied facility must be trained in lead safety.

Talking Points:

  • Use lead safe work practices, including:
  • methods for clean up
  • waste disposal
  • protecting residents and occupants
  • Warn residents/occupants
  • There are 15 RRP training providers in NC
