Durham, North Carolina (November 24, 2014) – Prince & Sons, Inc. is proud to announce that David Prince has completed and passed the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Division of Public Health’s Lead-Based Paint Hazard Management Program for Renovation, Repair, and Painting last October 16, 2014.
Part of the job for general contractors in Durham, NC is to observe the highest safety standards when it comes to the projects they oversee. The course—required by the State among persons who conduct lead-based paint renovation, repair, and painting activities—therefore works to the advantage of Prince & Sons, and benefits their clients by ensuring proper and safe supervision of every project.
Many residential and child-occupied facilities built before 1978 contain lead-based paint. Lead is a toxic substance that is harmful to adults, but even more so for children under 6 years old. Exposure to the substance has been found to result to reduced IQ, learning disabilities, and behavioral issues, among other side-effects. It can enter the body through dust inhalation and ingestion, and the debris created during a project can carry lead particles all over a house even in areas where no work is being done. Once it has traveled, it can accumulate in air vents, on cabinets, and on furniture, which increases the hazard further.
Specific precautionary measures must be taken to protect a facility’s occupants, workers, and the general public throughout all phases of a construction project where lead-based paint is involved. The serious risks it entails makes it essential to hire a general contractor in Durham, NC with a certified lead renovator to ensure that the project is handled correctly.
