Lead Abatement and Certification Program
The Ohio Department of Health Lead Poisoning Prevention Program ensures the public receives safe and proper lead abatement, detection, and analytical services by requiring those services be conducted according to federal and state regulations, and by trained and licensed personnel. As of October 1, 1998 the Lead Program was authorized by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to administer and enforce the lead licensure and approval program in Ohio. The program licenses lead risk assessors, lead abatement contractors, lead abatement workers, lead inspectors, and lead abatement project designers. In addition, the Lead Program approves initial and refresher lead training courses including: lead abatement worker, lead inspector, lead risk assessor, lead abatement contractor, and lead abatement project designer. The program approves abatement systems and products (encapsulants), clinical laboratories that analyze blood lead levels in humans, and environmental lead analytical laboratories that analyze the amount of lead in the environment.
