What Happens if I Hire Someone to Work in My Home Who Doesn't Have an RRP License?

Contractors performing RRP work are required to be licensed by DLS; their employees must be trained in the use of lead-safe work practices, and those lead-safe work practices must be followed to minimize occupants' exposure to lead hazards. If you hire someone who is untrained and unlicensed, you risk putting your family's and your own health in danger through lead exposure. A person who has taken the required training knows how to prepare the work area, use work practices that minimize the generation of lead paint dust, and knows how to clean up properly. Please read our brochure entitled, "5 Reasons Why You Need To Hire A Lead-Safe Contractor."
