Question (23002-25279)

Will insurance premiums go up for contractors covered by the Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule that work in homes and child-occupied facilities with lead-based paint?

Answer

The practice of carrying insurance to cover work in older homes from potential lead poisoning damages is not new.  The RRP Rule, because it sets a clear standard of care and allows contractors to demonstrate that they meet that standard by taking appropriate training and using proper work practices, could eventually lead to insurance premiums that reflect that proactive stance.
