If you’re painting or decorating a property built prior to 1970, then chances are you may disturb paint containing lead, or asbestos sheeting.
If not handled safely, these materials can be hazardous to humans and animals.
Professional management of lead and asbestos hazards is crucial. That’s why we offer the following course in lead and asbestos management.
CPCCPD3031A: Implement safe lead paint and asbestos work practices in the painting industry.
This unit of competency deals with the treatment of lead-based paint hazards, including removal, encapsulation, and control. The unit covers planning
and preparation, removal of contaminated material, encapsulation of contaminated material and clean-up best-practices.
The pre-requisite for this course is CPCCOHS1001A – Work safely in the construction industry.
The course costs $164.00 for a member, and $205.00 for a non-member.
It’s an unfortunate reality that lead-based paint was used in Australian houses built before 1970. And whilst this issue is mostly confined to
houses of that era, it’s also possible that in certain locations, paint containing led may have been used more recently.
It’s now well known that exposure to lead is a health risk. Even brief exposure to paint-dust or paint-chips containing led should be avoided.
We strongly advise anyone who considers doing maintenance on a house containing lead-based paint to avoid exposing themselves and those around
them to its hazards.
For more information, we recommend contacting the Community Information Unit, available to call on 1800 803 772. Along with the Lead Advisory Service,
available to call on 1800 626 086, there are a number of resources available online that can provide further information should you believe
your house may be affected.
We strongly recommend the usage of MPA registered professionals for all projects where lead-based paint may be a factor.
