Brownfield 2011

Brownfield Redevelopment Training Program St. Louis Community Colleges have received a grant from the USEPA for a Brownfield Development Training Program. The six week program will provide training to unemployed and underemployed residents of Brownfield areas, enabling them to work in the remediation of these sites. The training will include topics such as ecosystem restoration, hazardous materials handling, asbestos and lead abatement. This program began in August, 2009, and with continued funding will be completed July, 2012. For information on recruitment, please contact Tim Boul at 314-644-9621. EPA\\\\\\\'s Brownfields Initiative is an organized commitment to help communities revitalize abandoned contaminated properties, and to thereby eliminate potential health risks and restore economic vitality to areas where these properties exist. EPA defines brownfields as abandoned, idled or under-used industrial and commercial facilities where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by real or perceived environmental contamination. Successful Brownfield programs help to improve affected communities by eliminating environmental hazards, redeveloping properties, and providing jobs.

Lead Renovator, Repair and Painting Refresher

Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. To protect against this risk, on April 22, 2008, EPA issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices and other actions aimed at preventing lead poisoning. Under the rule, beginning in April 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. This EPA accredited course will help contractors comply with this rule. This course is only for those who are already certified under the Lead Renovator program, or Lead Abatement program (worker or supervisor). Available in English and Spanish
