Contractors Pollution Liability for Lead Based Paint

window with lead based paint

On April 22, 2010, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) launched a regulation aimed at preventing lead poisoning. All contractors performing renovation, repair or painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities and schools must be certified and follow lead-safe work practices. Firms must be certified and renovators must be trained. Full enforcement of the rule began 10/1/2010.
The fine for non-compliance by the EPA is $37,500 per violation, per day. 
Read the EPA's compliance handbook about this important rule.

drywall contractorsWhile the new regulation does not mandate insurance coverage for the contractor, the exposures are still present. Your work could cause lead poisoning. Your General Liability insurance excludes coverage for lead liability. Pollution Liability gives you the protection you need.
