The Mass Department of Labor Standards posted the information below on their website to inform contractors that there are consequences for working on a RRP job without a license. In addition homeowners are now becoming aware of this information due to the increase in outreach by DLS. Over the next few months 8 billboards will be placed throughout the state.

Three weeks ago a contractor called me freaking out that he needed his Mass Lead Safe Renovation Contractor License as a condition to win a $60,000.00 kitchen job. He was RRP trained last spring and like many contractors did not send in his EPA Certified Firm Application. He has employees and needs to send in an OSHA Written Respirator and Worker Safety Plan to qualify for the Mass Lead license. Since he was not listed on the Mass License list he lost the kitchen job. Ouch!
