Lead Paint Safety Field Guide & Webinar

lead field guide


This webinar will discuss important changes and updates to HUD's Lead Paint Safety field guide. This guide was recently updated by the HUD Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes to include important safety and lead handling practices for painting, repairs, and home maintenance.

If you or your organization perform routine maintenance on homes or apartments built before 1978, or you provide guidance or training to people or organizations that do, this guide will help with planning and safely carrying out the work, while minimizing the production and spread of lead dust. 

Audience: The webinar is intended for those with some experience and knowledge of environmental health science and work practices around maintenance and home improvements. 

The webinar will be presented by Warren Friedman, PhD, Senior Advisor to the Director of HUD's Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes and Bruce Haber, Division Director of the Program and Regulatory Support Division of that Office. Presenters will cover the following topics:

  • What are the differences between this publication and its predecessor?
  • Who are the potential users?
  • How does this relate to EPA's materials on the RRP?
  • Key points to consider.
