LSW Practices - PPM

   US DOE requires that all work performed on
    homes built before 1978 be completed using
    Lead Safe Work Practices (LSW) unless the
    building surfaces have been certified as lead
   US DOE requires that all
    subgrantee/subcontractor personnel who will
    come in contact with lead paint attend a US
    DOE approved One Day lead Safe Work
    Practices training session.

   Score painted surfaces
   Reduce dust produced
       Work wet
       Dust shrouds on tools connected to
        HEPA vacuum
   Wear appropriate personal
    protective equipment
   Clean up work area
NID – Negative Initial Determination

   Documentation from air monitoring for lead
    on 12 common Weatherization tasks
       New York Weatherization initiated
       Updated annually
   Field sampling of air samples proving that if
    LSW practices are followed, minimal
    exposure to lead dust will occur
   Satisfies OSHA for minimal exposure levels
   Reduces need for use of PPE
