PRE-RENOVATION EDUCATION AND RENOVATION, REPAIR AND
PAINTING ACTIVITIES INVOLVING LEAD-BASED PAINT

333-070-0075

Authority, Purpose, Applicability

(1) Authority. These rules are promulgated in accordance with and under the authority of ORS 431.920.

(2) Purpose:

(a) The purpose of these rules is to address Oregon's need for a qualified and properly trained workforce to perform renovation, repair and painting of target housing and child-occupied facilities, and to safeguard the environment and protect the health of building occupants from lead-based paint hazards.

(b) These rules prescribe the requirements for certification of individuals and firms who perform for compensation renovation, repair and painting in target housing and child occupied facilities.

(c) These rules will establish work practice standards for the performance of renovation, repair and painting activities for certified individuals and certified renovation firms and will require that activities be performed only by certified individuals and certified renovation firms.

(d) These rules prescribe the requirements to ensure that owners and occupants of target housing and child-occupied facilities receive information on lead-based paint hazards before these renovations begin.

(3) Applicability:

(a) These rules apply to all certified individuals and certified renovation firms who perform for compensation renovation, repair and painting activities in target housing and child-occupied facilities as defined in OAR 333-070-0085, except for the following:

(A) Renovations in target housing or child-occupied facilities in which a written determination from a State of Oregon certified lead inspector or risk assessor that the components affected by the renovation are free of paint or other surface coatings that contain lead equal to or in excess of 1.0 milligrams/per square centimeter (mg/cm2) or 0.5 percent by weight.

(B) Renovations in target housing or child-occupied facilities in which a certified renovator tests each component affected by the renovation using an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized test kit as defined in OAR 333-070-0085. The renovator must follow the kit manufacturer's instructions. This determines that the components are free of paint or other surface coatings that contain lead equal to or in excess of 1.0 mg/cm2 or 0.5 percent by weight. If the components make up an integrated whole, such as the individual stair treads and risers of a single staircase, the renovator is required to test only one of the individual components, unless the individual components appear to have been repainted or refinished separately.

(b) The information distribution requirements in OAR 333-070-0095 do not apply to emergency renovation operations. Emergency renovations other than interim controls are also exempt from the warning sign, containment, waste handling, training, and certification requirements in OAR 333-070-0105 to the extent necessary to respond to the emergency. Emergency renovations are not exempt from the cleaning requirements of OAR 333-070-0090, which must be performed by certified renovators or individuals trained in accordance with OAR 333-070-0100, the cleaning verification requirements of OAR 333-070-0090, which must be performed by certified renovators, and the recordkeeping requirements of OAR 333-070-0110. Once the immediate emergency is over, lead safe work practices and all the requirements of these rules shall be in effect.

(c) These rules:

(A) Require that renovation, repair and painting activities must be performed by certified renovators and individuals who have on the job training by a certified renovator working for a certified renovation firm.

(B) Prescribe the requirements for, and the manner of, certifying competency of applicants for certification as a certified individual and of the certified renovation firms employing such individuals.

(C) Determine the work practice standards for renovation, repair and painting activities, and those actions or circumstances that constitute failure to achieve or maintain competency, or that otherwise are contrary to the public interest, for which the Authority may deny, suspend, or revoke certification.

(D) Establish the fees to the extent necessary to defray costs of those activities prescribed herein.

(d) A certified renovation firm who is licensed by the Construction Contractors Board (CCB) is not required to be certified by the Authority under these rules, but is subject to the work practice standards in these rules.

(11) Standards for post-renovation cleaning verification of interiors. A certified renovation firm shall have a certified renovator:

(a) Perform a visual inspection to determine whether dust, debris or residue is still present. If dust, debris or residue is present, these conditions must be removed by re-cleaning and another visual inspection must be performed.

(b) After a successful visual inspection:

(A) Verify that each windowsill in the work area has been adequately cleaned, using the following procedure:

(i) Wipe the windowsill with a wet disposable cleaning cloth that is damp to the touch. If the cloth matches or is lighter than the cleaning verification card, the windowsill has been adequately cleaned.

(ii) If the cloth does not match and is darker than the cleaning verification card, re-clean the windowsill as directed in subparagraph (A)(i) of this subsection, then either use a new cloth or fold the used cloth in such a way that an unused surface is exposed, and wipe the surface again. If the cloth matches or is lighter than the cleaning verification card, that windowsill has been adequately cleaned.

(iii) If the cloth does not match and is darker than the cleaning verification card, wait for one hour or until the surface has dried completely, whichever is longer, and wipe the windowsill with a dry disposable cleaning cloth. After this wipe, the windowsill has been adequately cleaned.

(B) Wipe uncarpeted floors and countertops within the work area with a wet disposable cleaning cloth. Floors must be wiped using an application device with a long handle and a head to which the cloth is attached. The cloth must remain damp at all times while it is being used to wipe the surface for post-renovation cleaning verification. If the surface within the work area is greater than 40 square feet, the surface within the work area must be divided into roughly equal sections that are each less than 40 square feet. Wipe each such section separately with a new wet disposable cleaning cloth. If the cloth used to wipe each section of the surface within the work area matches the cleaning verification card, the surface has been adequately cleaned.
