Renovation, Repair and Painting/Lead Safety
Work Practices Initial & Refresher Course

Monday, July 31, 2017 8:00am – 5:00pm

The EPA and Kansas state requirements mandate that all persons who work on pre-1978 houses, schools and daycares receive accredited LSWP/RRP training before the work begins. This is required for any construction-related project that disturbs lead-based paint. The EPA and State monetary and imprisonment penalties for non-compliance are extensive! All persons are required to be licensed/certified by the EPA or the appropriate State agency where the work is occurring.

The class is being taught by Larry Hopkins, President of BEC (Baker Environmental Consulting). He is the BEC Training Manager for EPA (RRP/LSWP Initial and Refresher Courses) and the states of Missouri and Kansas providing Training, Testing, and Consulting for residential and commercial clients throughout the mid-west.
