Lead Licensure and Accreditation Program

This program issues professional licenses to ensure that the public receives safe and proper lead abatement, detection, and analytical services.

The Ohio Department of Health Lead Poisoning Prevention Program ensures that the public receives safe and proper lead abatement, detection and analytical services. The program licenses lead risk assessors, lead abatement contractors, lead abatement workers, lead inspectors, lead project designers, and clearance technicians. In addition, this program approves initial and refresher lead training courses. The program approves abatement systems and products (encapsulants), clinical laboratories that analyze blood lead levels in humans and environmental lead analytical laboratories that analyze the amount of lead in the environment.

The lead program also provides high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) vacuums for loan to the general public through health and housing agencies. The program dispenses information and educational pamphlets about lead poisoning and its prevention upon request as well as conducts training sessions for lead professionals, training providers, landlords, tenants, real estate agents, remodelers, licensed personnel, medical personnel and the general public.
