More "Leaducation"

(we took the certification course, but this one is helpful if you aren't using HUD money and you just want to be safe)

Northern Kentucky Health Department sponsors

Lead Safe Work Practices Class

Thursday 6/18/09

6 pm to 8:30 pm


Mary Ann Mongan (Covington) Branch

Kenton County Library

502 Scott Boulevard

Covington, Ky, 41011

Who is the class for?

· Homeowners doing renovation, repainting, or remodeling work where lead-based paint may be encountered

· Building supervisors and landlords

· Homeowners and property owners associations

· Community and social service organizations

· Home (or code) inspectors

· Maintenance workers

· State and local municipal agencies

NOTE: This class does not satisfy HUD requirements for lead safe training for workers on federally funded projects between $5k and $25k. Please call for more info if you need a class for this purpose.

What will be covered?

This class will teach attendees lead-safe work practices and the strategies for implementing them. Many homes built before 1978 contain lead-based paint, so it is important that renovation, remodeling and repair activities use methods that reduce and control dust and debris created during work. Even a small amount of dust can pose a serious health risk to children and families.

Is there a cost involved?

Class is free of charge.

Is there a deadline for registration?

Thursday 6/18/09 4pm
