Renovators and contractors doing work that disturbs paint in child-occupied facilities and homes built before 1978 are required to work in “lead-safe” ways. The EPA lead web site tells about lead’s hazards, preventing lead exposure, living safely in pre-1978 buildings, and what “lead-safe” means. The page “Operators of Child Care Facilities” informs operators in older buildings that they either 1) get lead-safe certified if they are doing repairs/remodels themselves, or 2) that they advisedly hire a lead-safe certified firm.
