Benefits to You and Your Organization

Business owners often don’t understand the true benefits of providing workers with Lead Renovator training or having a certified Lead Renovator on hand.  Guidelines within the construction and renovation industry change at a rapid pace, making it difficult for many businesses to keep up.  Changes cannot be ignored.  Complying with the regulations protect the health of your workers, their families and the residents.  Providing employees with proper training is a great opportunity to address how current processes can be improved while learning something new.  Investing both the time and resources to have your staff taught will help make these processes the standard.  Safety is key.
