The Residential, Commercial and Public Building Contractors (RC) listed have
been accredited by the Maryland Department of the Environment to provide lead
paint abatement services.
There are two kinds of lead paint supervisors who may perform lead paint
abatement work on residential, commercial and public buildings. They qualify in
the following ways:
- Maintenance & Repainting Supervisor (S4) - May provide oversight
of Lead Paint Abatement Workers and perform work for activities such as
minor repairs, painting and window replacement.
- Removal & Demolition Supervisor (S2) – Also known as an Abatement
Supervisor. May provide oversight of Lead Paint Abatement Workers and
perform work from minor repairs and painting to major renovations,
demolitions and lead paint abatement projects.
Lead Paint Abatement Workers are to have their current training ID card in
their possession while performing lead paint abatement. There is no
accreditation for them but are to work under the supervision of an accredited
Lead Paint Abatement Supervisor.
