The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Branch (CLPPB) staff manages a program to ensure that construction activities
involving lead are performed in a manner to eliminate existing lead hazards, and
to avoid creating new lead poisoning hazards for children and other occupants,
as well as the workers themselves. The primary activities include:
- Evaluating and accrediting training providers who teach lead specialists how
to find and abate lead hazards.
- Evaluating the qualifications of applicants for lead certification, and
granting certification to those qualified to perform lead-related construction
work in an effective and lead-safe manner.
