)-- Builders Site Protection announced today that they are committed to providing builders with the mandatory supplies they need to meet the new EPA lead abatement regulations. Beginning on April 22nd 2010, contractors performing work that disturbs lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 will be required to take specific measures to minimize dust and prevent toxic lead from negatively impacting public health.
Pat Mullen, president and C.E.O. of Builders Site Protection states, “The new EPA lead abatement regulations will affect millions of builders and contractors, many of whom are still confused as to how to fully comply. That’s why Builders Site Protection supplies renovation, repair, and painting (RRP) projects with all of the dust containment tools and safety gear required to properly address lead abatement requirements.” Listed below are several new requirements and products that help builders and contractors comply with these new EPA regulations:
Contain the work area:

Protective tape: Builders Site Protection sells several types of thick, durable tapes of superior quality that will ensure that no lead paint dust will spread outside the containment area.
Floor protection: Using floor protection products and carpet masking helps contain the spread of dust and assists in easy and quick clean up.
Duct covers: Tightly seal vents in lead abatement work areas with thick and effective duct cover film or OSHA-approved Pro-Vent™ covers.
