RRP Implementation Workshop for Contractors Comes to the Cape

  
  
  
  

On 2/9/2010 The Contractor Coaching Partnership Team comes to Hyannis. Our workshop team includes Remodeling Industry Expert Shawn McCadden, Insurance expert Tom Messier, Attorney Andrea Goldman and me. Register here.

The workshop is sponsored and hosted by Mid Cape Home Center of Hyannis.

Many Mass contractors are grapling with the recent Mass takeover of the EPA RRP Law. Contractors who were trained before 4/22/2010 are not up to date on the new Mass regulations written into the law.

One tell tale sign is Mass contractors are not signing up to obtain their Mass Lead Safe Renovation License. As of 1/1/2011 there were 4100 Mass companies on the EPA Certified Firm List. Yet there are only 1,000 on the Mass DOS list.

We are told by many contractors that they did not know about the new Mass regulations. Also many contractors are not sure how to handle the OSHA Lead Standard written into the law.

These items and more will be covered in our RRP Implementation Workshop in Hyannis on 2/9/2011.

Come join us and make sure you are up to date on the new Mass regulations.

Shawn and I will be meeting with the DOS in February to discuss changes and other issues regarding the Mass DOS RRP Lead Law. We will keep you informed through our blogs.

Do you know of any resources out in the Seattle area that is doing updates to the ruling. Our local MBA(Master Builders Association)is pretty lame about this whole issue. I'm certified but feeling pretty left out on updates and who's doing what and nobody seems to really be taking this ruling seriously. Kind of like when all the fall protection rules went into effect nobody took it seriously until several companies got dinged by OSHA or L&I.

hey mark are you getting a little vigg/juice out of this whole epa rrp mess or are you just kissing ass to a nobody epa/dos/cadillac deval,rent a rat agent, it seems like you are acting hypocrytical saying you are behind us when you bend over backwards for these guys not for us contractors/buisnessmen. contractors we are pissing against the wind paying money into trade organizations with no good results in the end. these trade groups we pay moneys to, what did they do for us...? nothing thats all we get is a goverment that dictatorships our lives with regulations and some one that is going to tell we the people how we should live our lives and how we should work. as president darthbama said in his last night speech, there is a department for salmon when they are in fresh water, theres a department for when they are in salt water... and theres a department for when they are being smoked. at the next group dos meeting why dont you bring up having all contractors get a epa rrp certified micro chip implanted in thier right hand before they can be allowed to pull a building permit. besides that i might have to put a liscence plate and register/insure and apply for hazzard waiste insurance on my shop vac named C.3.P.0 and my partner R.2.D.2 a.k.a gold dude.has to wear a mustard gas nazi resistant respirator/tyvec suit, OSHA aproved. when i pull up to a senior citizens house with my milenium falcun box truck, and my yard signs saying "toxic waiste stay away" not my buisness advertising sign, and all my qualifications now... the nieghbors are going to look at us and think its year 2075 
 
 
 
anyways, we were told to get our lead certification class before aprill 22nd last year. now the emporer is telling us what we did was not good enough for you loyalists and that we basically have to spend more of our money to take yet another one of your jedi knight class a.k.a epa/osha classes.. what else does the emporer want from us ? i dont know about you but im going to spend my winter in the star wars bar with all the freaky people see you in the spring im done .
