Concerns about legal liabilities related to the EPA RRP Rule

Posted by Shawn McCadden on Fri, Apr 16, 2010 @ 08:25 AM

Lead Hazard  


RRP Liabilities: Although contractors have always been liable should they create lead contamination on their jobsites, the new EPA RRP Rules and the coming public awareness of the new rules will definitely make more consumers and their neighbors aware of the risks of lead poisoning due to renovations.  Many contractors are expressing concern that the added awareness will increase the likelihood that they will get sued for lead contamination at jobsites and or lead poisoning of the occupants.  RRP legal concerns are real!

I caught Joe Cracco of Modern Yankee Builders in Cumberland RI at the JLC LIVE Trade Show in Providence in March 2010. Joe had just completed the EPA Certified Renovator training at the show.  In this video Joe  shares his concerns on RRP liabilities and some possible options  he is considering to protect his business.
