Environmental Software Embraced by Accredited RRP Lead Training Professionals
EnvironmentalReports’ software allows lead contractors and environmental professionals to track and document lead projects in compliance with RRP regulations.
On Thursday of this week new federal rules dealing with lead poisoning go into effect. Thousands of environmental contractors, professionals, painters and others who deal with properties across the country are being affected. Now, when performing renovations, repairs and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and schools built before 1978, contractors must by law be certified and follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.
The new regulations, know as the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule, requires renovation firms to be certified, individuals to be trained in lead-safe work practices and that training providers be accredited by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA has the authority to seek civil fines of $32,500 per offense and an additional criminal fine of $32,500 plus jail time for knowing and willful violation of the RRP requirements. The last several months have seen record numbers of students taking courses from these accredited training providers.
Since the new law requires contractors to store certification and testing documents for a 3 year minimum many of these same training providers have been informing their students of a software program designed specifically to address these regulations. EnvironmentalReports, Inc., introduced the software at this year’s Environmental Information Association (EIA) conference and has already aligned their software with one of the nation’s largest lead laboratories, EMSL Analytical, Inc.
Environmental professionals and contractors can now harness the utility of the program to assist them in following RRP documentation requirements. The patent pending online document management system, which also works with handheld technologies, allows professionals to setup projects and stores all their important environmental data. It enables users to organize, track, share, manage, archive and easily retrieve data.
“EnvironmentalReports’ software solutions are the perfect match for contractors and environmental professionals who must now follow the RRP regulations,” reported Michael McIntyre, Vice President of EnvironmentalReports, Inc. “The program was designed to streamline and facilitate the entire process from start to end on lead and other environmental projects.”
