Baker offers Lead Safety Certification

Renovation, Repair and Painting

Baker College of Owosso is offering an EPA approved 8-hour workshop for individuals to become certified in lead safety renovation, repair and painting.

Federal law requires contractors who renovate homes and child-occupied facilities built before 1978 to be certified and trained in the use of lead-safe work practices. Renovation is defined as any activity that disturbs painted surfaces and includes most remodeling and repair work.

Projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities and schools must use certified renovators who are trained by EPA approved training providers.

The course will meet Tuesday, May 1st, and Thursday, May 3rd, 2012 from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the Baker College, Bentley Campus.

To register for the class or for more information, call (989) 729-3603, visit us on the web at Bentley.Baker.edu, or at Facebook.com\BakerBCS.
