Lead Information for Contractors and Homeowners

Any contractors who work on homes built before 1978 need to be especially mindful during renovations or demolitions to ensure they don’t disturb or create lead hazards. There are certain State and Federal regulations that need to be followed when completing any work on a pre-1978 home or child-occupied facility to reduce the risk of lead poisoning due to renovations. They are as follows:

  • Kentucky Revised Statutes and Regulations Pertaining to Environmental Lead Hazard Detection or Abatement
  • EPA’s Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule
    • The EPA's RRP Rule requires that firms performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and pre-schools built before 1978 have their firm certified by EPA (or an EPA authorized state), use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers and follow lead-safe work practices.
