Recently, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published a BRAND NEW PAMPHLET that gives comprehensive information about how to protect yourself and your family from lead poisoning. It details ways you can reduce hazards in your home environment and tips on how to properly renovate so as not to create dangerous conditions.
You can download this pamphlet for free at the EPA website, which also has a variety of other information sources and pdf versions of everything in Spanish!
The Renovate Right brouchure discusses a new law coming into effect in April, 2010 which requires all contractors to have EPA certified staff who are well trained in "Lead Safe Work Practices." Plus, all homeowners must provide tenants with the new Renovate Right pamphlet to prospective tenants. Even child care fascilities, preschools and kindergarten classrooms must distribute the pamphlet to clients.
