To protect against this risk, on April 22, 2008, EPA issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices and  other actions aimed at preventing lead poisoning. Under the rule,  beginning April 22, 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and  painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care  facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must  follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

EPA  requires that firms performing renovation, repair, and painting  projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care  facilities and schools be certified by EPA and that they use certified  renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers to follow  lead-safe work practices.
Fortunately  these new renovation and painting rules do not require testing or  removal of lead-based paint, only safety procedures. However, property  managers and contractors can be fined $38,000 a day for violating these  new rules.
