What is the EPA RRP Renovation Check List and what is it used for?

Posted by Shawn McCadden on Mon, Apr 19, 2010 @ 03:31 PM

The EPA RRP renovation checklist is a form used  to document certain activities and the fulfillment of certain requirements related to the project and jobsite.

Renovators can use the checklist provided by the EPA or can create their own checklist.  An advantage of creating your own checklist could be that it would include additional items, specific to the work types you do, that your business would want to make sure were considered and or completed by employees while working on projects covered under the RRP Rule.  One example might be that abrasive tools were fitted with a shroud and connected to a functioning HEPA vac while in use at the job site.  Another might be how waste water was handled.


According to the EPA RRP Rule:

"This final rule also requires firms performing renovations to retain documentation of compliance with the work practices and other requirements of the rule. Specifically, the firm must document that a certified renovator was assigned to the project, that the certified renovator provided on-the-job training for workers used on the project, that the certified renovator performed or directed workers who performed the tasks required by this final rule, and that the certified renovator performed the post-renovation cleaning verification. This documentation must include a copy of the certified renovator's training certificate. Finally, the documentation must include a certification by the certified renovator that the work practices were followed with narration as applicable."

Here is what the renovation checklist offered by the EPA looks like:

"A log book with consecutively numbered pages is maintained at each job site which contains the names, license numbers, and dates/times in and out for all Lead-Safe Remodeler/ Renovators gaining access to a containment area."
