Course Description

Sponsored by:

FACS

 

 

This course will include an overview of current lead regulations and how they apply to residential, commercial, and public buildings. Lead-based coatings are commonly found on the exterior and interior of buildings, primarily those built prior to 1978. Lead can also be found in other common building materials, such as window glazing putty, batteries, mortar, acoustical materials, ceramic glazes, varnishes, plastics, drinking water pipes and solders, and soils. Basic lead awareness training is integral to common building management and maintenance programs. The goal of this course is to provide building managers with a general understanding of potential public health issues related to lead and other heavy metals, and how they should be addressed in a typical office building or residential structure.

Learning objectives:

  • Provide building managers with the basic history and awareness of lead in the typical building
  • Outline what should be included in a quality lead assessment and how to identify building materials that contain lead and other heavy metals
  • Provide an overview of current lead regulations for the different types of buildings and variations in local, state and federal regulations
  • Review the US EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting regulations for targeted housing
  • Discuss current issues related to lead in drinking water and elevated blood levels in children that now involves local health departments
  • Develop a basic understanding of the proper work practices and procedures to limit exposures to lead and other heavy metals in the built environment
