A lead supervisor, lead project designer, or property owner performing lead hazard reduction must prepare an occupant protection plan to protect the building occupants from exposure to any lead-based paint hazards. The plan must be specific to the affected property where the project is occurring. An occupant protection plan is not required if an affected property is completely unoccupied while regulated lead work is performed.


The plan must include:


the name, if any, and address of the affected property;


the name of the certified lead firm, lead supervisor, or property owner conducting the lead hazard reduction;


a list of the work areas;


a description of the lead hazard reduction methods used in each work area; and


a description of the measures to be taken to protect the occupants from lead exposure during the lead hazard reduction.


The lead supervisor or property owner must:


inform the lead workers, or any adult relatives of the property owner, of the occupant protection plan;


make the occupant protection plan available according to part 4761.2610, subpart 1, item B; and


give a copy of the occupant protection plan to an adult currently residing in the residence to inform the adult of the work areas that will not be accessible to occupants until lead clearance sample results are achieved.


If any information changes during the project, the new information must be added to the occupant protection plan, as it becomes known.


The certified lead firm or the lead supervisor must provide copies of the plan to the person who contracted for the services.


Warning signs must plainly warn individuals that lead hazard reduction is in progress and not to enter. Signs must comply with Code of Federal Regulations, title 29, section 1926.62, paragraph (m).
