Question (23002-20640)

The RRP Rule provisions require exterior containment. At what point is the wind too strong to allow work to continue?

Answer

The work practices for exterior projects are based on a performance standard -- the certified renovator or a worker under the direction of the certified renovator must contain the work area so that dust or debris does not leave the work area while the renovation is being performed.  The certified renovator is responsible for determining when the wind is so strong that no form of containment is adequate to keep dust or debris from leaving the work site, and therefore work must stop until conditions improve such that containment can be maintained.
