New Jersey Government Lowers Lead Limits

New Jersey Government Lowers Lead Limits
Last month the New Jersey government signed a law that limits the amount of lead allowed in a child’s blood, from 10 micrograms of lead per deciliter to 5 micrograms.

According to Durability+Design, in 2015, state officials said that of the 200,000 children tested, fewer than 900 were found to have blood-lead levels higher than 10 micrograms/deciliter, but advocates said some 3,000 children tested higher than 5 micrograms/deciliter that year.

Because of this wider pool of lead-poisoned children, there will most likely be an increase in demand for lead abatement, lead renovation, and lead inspection professionals. Zack Academy has put together several how-to pages to help future New Jersey lead paint professionals to properly attain certification and begin working as soon as possible:
