• WHY LIMIT YOUR WORK OPPORTUNITIES?
    The State of Iowa and EPA require contractors to complete courses to work in or on pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities.

  • IT'S THE RIGHT THING TO DO...
    Nearly one out of every fourteen Iowa children tested has elevated levels of lead in their blood.

  • GET CERTIFIED IN LEAD-SAFE WORK PRACTICES
    Iowa Lead Safety offers training in all lead disciplines.

  • IT’S THE LAW...
    Contractors who violate Iowa’s lead-safe rule may be fined up to $5,000 for each violation.

  • LEAD-CERTIFIED CONTRACTORS...
    Working to protect Iowa’s families. Making Iowa homes, lead-safe homes.

IMPORTANT TRAINING CLASS UPDATE

You may have received information, or heard about online training being available for your Lead Safe Renovator Refresher training. Online training IS available, but NOT for Iowa licenses. Online training is ONLY valid for those states whose lead program is administered by the EPA. IOWA IS NOT ONE OF THOSE STATES. Iowa administers their own program and does not currently have online training available. Your refresher course must be taken in a classroom in order to maintain your IOWA license.

ANNOUNCING...Iowa Asbestos Safety!

We're Working Towards A Lead Safe Iowa

Iowa Lead Safety was founded for the primary purpose to help make all Iowa homes and properties lead safe by training contractors, realtors, landlords and homeowners in lead-safe work practices. We connect home and property owners with contractors trained to provide their services using lead-safe work practices, and we raise awareness of lead poisoning dangers through contact with our community members. We also inspect homes and properties for the presence of lead.
