DHS 163.01(2) (2)Activities involving target housing and child-occupied facilities. This chapter is intended to ensure that persons who perform renovation, lead hazard reduction or lead investigation activities do so safely to prevent exposure of building occupants to hazardous levels of lead. This is accomplished by requiring an individual to be trained and certified under s. DHS 163.10 before the individual performs, supervises or offers to perform or supervise renovation, specified lead hazard reduction or lead investigation activities involving target housing or a child-occupied facility or the real property on which the target housing or child-occupied facility stands. In addition, the certified individual is required to be associated with a company certified by the department under s. DHS 163.12. Subchapter III requires that a training course that is represented as qualifying any person for certification to perform renovation, lead hazard reduction or lead investigation activities be accredited by the department before the training course is offered, advertised or conducted and that training managers and principal instructors be separately approved by the department.
DHS 163.01(3) (3)Activities involving registered lead-free property and registered lead-safe property. This chapter establishes standards for registered lead-free and registered lead-safe property, procedures for determining whether a property meets the standards, and procedures for issuing and maintaining certificates of lead-free status and lead-safe status.
