Audio Seminar on Lead Paint Now Free to NAHB Members
NAHB members can now listen to an online recording of NAHB’s audio seminar on the requirements of the new lead paint rule for free by logging in to www.nahb.org/leadpaintaudio. In the seminar, a panel of experts examines the new lead paint rule governing the work of professional remodelers where lead paint is involved.
Presented by NAHB Remodelers and The NAHB University of Housing last fall, “The EPA’s New Lead Paint Rule: What it Means for You” is an hour-long seminar that explains in detail what the new rule covers, what remodelers must do to be in compliance and where they can find additional information.
The rule, which will take effect on April 22, 2010, addresses remodeling and renovation projects disturbing more than six square feet of potentially contaminated painted surfaces for all residential and multifamily structures built prior to 1978 that are inhabited or frequented by pregnant women and children under the age of six.
NAHB members can listen to the streaming audio file of the original broadcast through Oct. 28, one year after the seminar was held. They can also receive handout material and a marketing bonus.
The seminar recording includes comments by:
- Brindley Byrd, CGR, CAPS, of QX2 Contracting in Lansing, Mich., an advocate for the remodeling industry and an active member of the NAHB Remodelers Lead Based Paint Task Force.
- Bob Hanbury, CGR, of House of Hanbury in Newington, Conn., a member of the Connecticut Department of Public Safety State Codes and Standards Committee who has represented the remodeling industry during discussions and presentations on lead paint with HUD and the EPA.
- Matt Watkins, NAHB environmental policy analyst, who has been integral in writing several comment letters about the rule to the EPA.
The fee for non-members is $79.
