Ensuring Lead Safety: Kore Roofing’s Commitment to Health and Quality

At Kore Roofing, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our clients and employees above all else. Our dedication to quality craftsmanship extends beyond just the structural integrity of the roofs we build and repair; it encompasses a steadfast commitment to health and environmental safety. One crucial aspect of this commitment is our rigorous adherence to lead safety protocols, backed by our certification from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Understanding Lead Risks in Roofing

Lead is a toxic metal that poses significant health risks, especially to young children and pregnant women. Exposure to lead can cause a range of health issues, from cognitive impairments to serious neurological and cardiovascular problems. In the context of roofing, lead exposure can occur during the renovation or demolition of older buildings, where lead-based materials might have been used.

Kore Roofing’s EPA Certification: What It Means

Being EPA-certified means that Kore Roofing has met the stringent requirements set forth by the EPA’s Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule. This certification ensures that our team is trained to follow lead-safe work practices to prevent lead contamination and protect occupants and workers from lead exposure.

Our Lead-Safe Practices

  1. Training and Certification: All Kore Roofing personnel involved in renovation, repair, and painting projects are thoroughly trained and certified in lead-safe practices. This includes understanding how to identify lead-based materials and how to handle them safely.
  2. Containment and Control: We use advanced techniques to contain lead dust and debris during roofing projects. This involves setting up barriers, using HEPA vacuums, and employing wet methods to minimize dust generation.
  3. Proper Disposal: Lead-contaminated waste is handled with the utmost care. We follow EPA guidelines to ensure that all hazardous materials are disposed of in a manner that protects both the environment and public health.
  4. Continuous Monitoring: Throughout the project, we monitor lead levels to ensure that our safety measures are effective. This proactive approach helps us maintain a safe environment for everyone involved.
  5. Clear Communication: We believe in transparency and keep our clients informed about the steps we are taking to ensure lead safety. This includes providing documentation of our EPA certification and the lead-safe practices we employ.
