Lead Safe Work PracticesKeeping New England Homes and Families Safe As of April 22, 2010, the EPA mandated the RRP Rule which requires contractors and home improvement companies to practice lead-safe practices which prevent lead paint hazards created by renovation, repair and painting activities that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 constructed homes. NEWPRO is an EPA Appointed Lead-Safe Certified firm and will conduct lead-safe practices in all pre-1978 homes that meet the criteria for the RRP Rule. All of NEWPRO installers are EPA Lead-Safe Certified and will install jobs using very stringent guidelines and procedures required by the EPA to ensure our homeowners’ safety. If you are having home improvement work done to your home, make sure you are dealing with a company or contractor who is EPA Lead-Safe Certified!
