The Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards (DLS) has recently adopted new requirements under its lead standard, 454 CMR 22.00, that apply to renovation, repair or painting (RRP) work conducted for a fee in target housing or any child-occupied facility , where more than threshold amounts of lead paint are disturbed.
With certain exceptions,contractors and otherentities who carry out work covered by these requirements must be licensed as Lead-Safe Renovation Contractors by DLS. Affected occupations include, but are not limited to: painters, plumbers, electricians, window installers, general contractors, property maintenance workers, and remodelers.
A person who has taken a one-day Lead-Safe Renovator-Supervisor or Certified Renovatorcourse and is in possession of a current certificate of training issued by an approved training provider must be on site and in control of the work t all times when the work is in progress. Workers on such projects must be trained by the certified supervisor or a training provider licensed by DLS.
The work must be carried out in accordance with work practice requirements specified in 454 CMR 22.00, including, but not limited to: testing of suspect materials, work area isolation or delineation, exclusion of personnel, covering of objects, acceptable work methods, cleanup, and cleaning verification.
Certain recordkeeping and notification requirements are also specified. It
is essential to determine whether or not the renovation work you perform falls
under the regulation; if it does, then your business must become licensed, your
supervisors trained and certified, and your workers trained.
Failure to comply with DLS regulations governing these matters may result in
the imposition of civil administrative penalties. You may view the regulations
describing these procedures at
