What EPA's Lead Rule Means to You
1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. ET
Presented by Patrick MacRoy, National Center for Healthy Housing

Click here to register.

EPA's Lead Repair, Renovation and Painting Rule went into effect on April 22. Even though our industry does not do renovations other than as add-on services, the rule may apply if you are doing termite damage repair or if you are performing intrusive pest control such as opening walls for rodent control and there are painted surfaces. During this webinar, you will learn the key points of the rule so that you can better understand how to apply them to your business.  Please note that any business doing work in the covered areas must read, understand, and comply with the requirements.

Patrick MacRoy is the director of community-based initiatives for the National Center for Healthy Housing.  Prior to this, MacRoy was the executive director of the Alliance for Healthy Homes, a national, nonprofit public interest organization devoted to eliminating health hazards from housing. Under MacRoy's leadership, the Alliance actively recruited and trained individuals and organizations to become EPA-accredited trainers under the Renovation, Repair, and Painting rule.  MacRoy holds a master's degree in environmental studies and a bachelor's in public policy, both from Brown University.
