All of those three have safety expectations for the site in the wake of the job, RRP is only designed not to add to the problem.
I accept that. But I don't agree that complying with lead safe work practices adds only trivial expenses/time when considering the following:

1. Certification
2. Marketing as RRP Certified
3. Lead testing
4. Containment material/labor to install
5. PPE/wash stations/safe work plans
6. Special equipment/supplies/accessories/maintenance
7. Training
8. Medical evaluation
9. Respirator program
10. Disposal of contaminated debris
11. Decontamination time of equipment
12. Administration and record keeping associated with compliance

Absolutely, but there's a lot more to lead-safe work practices than RRP. Most of the expenses on your list were required for 15 years before RRP went into effect.

When we added RRP, the only things that changed were nos. 1, and some minor changes to 4 and 12. We don't do any marketing, so #2 is moot.

The point I was trying to make in my earlier post is that the regulations and expenses of RRP, designed to reduce contamination of clients' homes, were minor compared to those long required by 1226.62.

I understand Gough. It just bothers me that it's hard enough to be compensated, or allowed time to perform a good paint job, let alone being tasked with the responsibility of managing hazards that have the potential to cause life long injury or disability to the children who will inevitably occupy the space you've been entrusted to make safe.
