Paul Sullivan, chair of NAHB Remodelers argues that safety training and refresher courses can be successfully delivered online, extending valuable education to a larger audience of professionals than the existing RRP program currently serves.
Roofing contractors fall under the Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) rules when:
- Removing or installing gutters
- Removing soffits and fascia
- During roof-tear off when abutting painted wood surfaces
- Removing shingles with an overspray of paint
- Doing siding work
Currently, RRP certification is done in the classroom that includes hands-on training to verify that workers are trained in the use of lead-safe work practices. Read more about RRP and lead-safe practices.
