Massachusetts RRP Regulations Require Use of a Sign-in/out Log At Containment Areas
One of the differences between the EPA RRP Rule and the Massachusetts RRP Rule is that Massachusetts requires the Licensed Lead-Safe Renovation Contractor (firm) to maintain a sign in/out log, just like the one required for deleading contractors, for workers who enter and exit the contained work area during RRP renovations.
According to section 22.13 (2) (e) of the MA RRP Regulations, titled “Record Keeping Requirements”, contractors must maintain a sign in/out log as required by 454 CMR 22.12(1)(a)10
Here is what the MA RRP regulations 454 CMR 22.12(1) (a) 10 state about this containment sign in log, sign out log:
“The Deleading Contractor or other entity carrying out a Class I Deleading Project shall ensure that each person entering or leaving the work area individually completes the appropriate entries in a sign in/out log. The sign in/out log shall include: the location of the project; current date; printed name; signed name; Massachusetts License number, where applicable; and the time of entry or exiting.”
To help renovators with this requirement I have created a sign in/out log sheet that I am making available as a free download. Use of the free sign in and out log is at your own risk. If you have any suggestions to improve the form please feel free to let me know. I hope this helps.
