Lead-Based Paint Abatement Activities

There are no online training courses for lead based paint.

July 1, 2020 – Lead Hazard Reduction Program Offers Temporary Extension for Lead-Based Paint Refresher Certificates.

On September 26, 2000, the Rules of Department of Environment and Conservation, Division of Solid Waste Management, Lead-Based Paint Abatement 1200-01-18-.01 (LBP Rule) were enacted.  According to the LBP Rule, LBP activities conducted in "target housing" and "child-occupied facilities" in the State of Tennessee must be conducted by firms and individuals certified by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC).

The Toxic Substances Program monitors the compliance of contractors and workers conducting LBP abatement activities in target housing and child occupied facilities built prior to 1978.  In compliance with the LBP Rule, a Lead Abatement Activity Compliance Guide Notebook was developed by the TDEC Lead Hazard Program based on collaboration with the Ohio Department of Health's Lead Poisoning Prevention Program.

This Notebook is intended to assist lead-based paint certified supervisors, project designers, and firms who conduct lead abatement activities in target housing and child occupied facilities within the State of Tennessee.

The forms, templates, regulations, and EPA documents contained in the Notebook will provide guidance to companies that will help them stay in compliance with the State of Tennessee Lead-Based Paint regulations while performing lead abatement projects.
