On 3/11/2011 I learned that the DOS is considering a sunset provision for contractors who sent in incomplete RRP lead applications. At the meeting Ernie Kelly from the DOS said; that even though there are 4000 Mass contractors who are Certified Firms on the EPA website, there are only 1000 in Mass. Contractors who Certified with the EPA before 7/9/2010 can apply for a license in Mass using the waiver form and not pay a fee. Yet only 1000 have done so.

A few weeks ago I suggested to Patricia Sutliffe of the Mass Division of Occupational Safety (DOS) that they should buy a booth at the Shriners Home Show in Wilmington, Mass this weekend. I figured there was nothing to lose and I forwarded her the information on how to purchase a booth at the Shriners Home Show.
Last week was a busy week for The Contractor Coaching Partnership Workshop team. On Tuesday we had our 4th successful RRP Implementation Workshop in Westborough and on Thursday we had our first RRP/OSHA Respirator and Worker Protection Safety Program seminar.
