Lead in Paint
Until the 1950’s, some paint contained as much as 50% lead (500,000 parts per million). In 1979, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission ordered the lead in residential paint reduced to 600 parts per million. Older buildings are more likely to have paint with high levels of lead. All buildings should be assumed to have lead-based paint unless they have been tested and shown otherwise, or unless paint records prove that the buildings have always been painted only with latex paint which very rarely contained lead.
California Regulation Authorities
In California there are two sets of regulations that govern how lead work should be conducted and when a state-certified lead worker must be used. DI applies the current industry standard and methods when performing our lead abatement projects.
Cal/OSHA Lead in Construction Standard (Title 8, Section 1532.1) Cal/OSHA’s Lead in Construction standards address how workers must be protected whenever they are doing construction or maintenance tasks that disturb lead paint with any detectable level.
California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Title 17 of the California Code of Regulations (17 CCR) CDPH’s 17 CCR mandates use of certain work practices that protect workers, building occupants, and surrounding environment whenever a lead abatement project is planned and follows requirements set forth by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Guidelines for the Evaluation and Control of Lead-Based Paint Hazards in Housing.
