**College Works Painting pays $32,508 EPA penalty for failing to inform homeowners or residents of possible lead hazards **
Make your clients, who are eager to start renovation projects, aware of potential hazards and their rights when hiring contractors.
What can InterNACHI inspectors do?
Educate your clients. InterNACHI certified inspectors sit at the breakfast table with new homebuyers, eager to start renovation projects. Educate homebuyers and sellers, and their real estate agents, about the new federal law that protects not only small children, but also our environment.

Get trained. Take InterNACHI’s EPA-approved course at [www.nachi.org/lead-safety-rrp-course](http://www.nachi.org/forum/f21/lead-safety-rrp-course), or watch NACHI.TV’s training video for inspectors at [www.nachi.tv/environmental/lead-safety-renovation-inspection.](http://www.nachi.tv/environmental/lead-safety-renovation-inspection.htm)
Get hired again by your client, when they hire their next contractor. You’ll be trained to oversee the contractor’s lead-safe work practices. The EPA has developed an inspection checklist for this task. www.epa.gov/lead/pubs/samplechecklist.pdf
