A Lead Based Paint Guide

The New England Lead Coordinating Committee, a consortium of state agencies working to eliminate lead poisoning, posted its Lead Safe Work Practices video for the Do-It-Yourself audience on YouTube:

Additional Information on Lead Safe Work Practices can be found at Wisconsin Department of Health Services

These new videos provide step-by-step demonstrations of lead-safe work practices and were developed to supplement required training and certification. Contractors must be trained and certified to conduct renovation, repairs and painting in homes and child occupied facilities built before 1978. The videos are for:

  • Certified contractors who are required to use these work practices when conducting renovation activities on older homes.
  • Certified Lead-Safe Renovators who are required to use these work practices when providing on-the-job training to other workers.
  • Do-it-yourself homeowners who are required to use these work practices will find these videos helpful in planning and conducting lead-safe renovation activities in their own homes.

The videos range in length from 4 to 14 minutes. A transcript and supply list for each video are provided as additional tools. Please have your sound on or use headphones to listen to the narration. You will need a media player (such as the Windows Media Player) to view these videos.
