Lead-Based Paint Program

Lead-Based Paint (LBP) was banned for use in houses in 1978, however, in houses built before 1978, there is a possibility that LBP is still present. Dust from LBP is the leading cause of lead poisoning in children which is a serious and preventable environmental health problem for both children and adults. In children, elevated lead exposure can cause decreased IQ, damage to the nervous system, and a range of other developmental and behavioral problems.

There are rules and regulations in place to help reduce lead exposure from LBP. The rules and regulations can generally be separated into 2 categories, 1) LBP activities (inspections, risk assessments, lead hazard screens, and abatement activities) and LBP renovation, repair, and painting (RRP).

The Utah LBP Program establishes and enforces work practice procedures for LBP activities and RRP performed by paid contractors in the State of Utah. The program oversees the certification of individuals and firms performing either LBP or RRP work activities, and establishes the procedures and requirements for the accreditation of LBP training providers that train the individuals performing LBP work.
