To update contractors, property managers and the public on lead paint regulations, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment is having an informational meeting on Monday.
The meeting will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department, 200 Maine, Suite B. Anyone can attend.
Kansas has the Lead-Based Paint Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule, which is intended to protect people from lead dust exposure and lead poisoning.
The law, which applies to homes, apartments and any child-occupied facility built before 1978, affects repair work, renovation activity and painting.
Monday’s meeting will review what the regulations entail, including pre-renovation education of occupants, training of staff, certification and licensing. The KDHE will also discuss proper on-the job work practices.
