Lead Safe Work Practices. Renovate, Repair and Painting (RRP). If you are a homeowner performing renovation, repair, or painting work in your own home, EPA's RRP rule does not cover your project.
There are four components of safe work practices:
Appropriate actions must be taken to protect occupants from lead-based paint hazards associated with Lead Hazard Reduction, paint stabilization, maintenance, or rehabilitation activities.
The worksite must be prepared to prevent the release of leaded dust and debris.
There are some methods that may not be used at any time to remove paint that is or may be lead-based paint.
