                    Do You Work with pre-1978 Real Estate? You Must Become LEAD SAFE CERTIFIED now to avoid fines & penalties from the EPA & from the GEORGIA Environmental Protection Division. To all owners, Realtors, investors, property managers, contractors, electricians, HVAC, plumbers & painters. Do you ever engage in any level of renovation, repair of painting? If so, read this: Any renovator, from owners to contractors, from plumbers to electricians to painters, who disturbs lead paint while working in a pre-1978 home, school or day care center, now must be Lead-Safe Certified. If you’re not, you can face tens of thousands of dollars in fines. Plus, you put the health of yourself, your workers and your customers at risk, which could result in lawsuits. One simple 8 hour class certifies you for five years. It’s that easy. Effective April 22, 2010, there are new Federal rules regarding how you perform any work that disturbs lead-based paint in homes, child-care facilities and schools built before 1978. You now must be EPA certified and follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. Failure to follow the new rules can result in federal fines of up to $37,500 per day or up to 5 years in federal prison, or both. Don’t take a chance - it’s not worth it.
