Macquarie University Lead Paint Management Course

The Centre for Open Education, Macquarie University in conjunction with CTI Consultants presented the Lead Paint Management course from Tuesday 6 October to 8 October 1998. Presenters included two members of The LEAD Group’s Technical Advisory Board – Prof Brian Gulson and Fred Salome.

The course was well supported, with a total of 27 attendees for the three separate courses.

Lead Paint Management – The Key Issues. 5 signed up to attend the introductory half day course, presented as a stand-alone overview of the key issues involved. This unit also formed the foundation of the longer courses.

Lead Paint Management in Residential and Commercial Buildings. The 2 day course had 10 attendees who underwent detailed training in lead paint management, including OH&S issues, lead paint identification, assessment of paint condition, debris containment, waste handling and basic paint removal methods. The hands-on workshops proved useful to demonstrate the procedures being taught.

Industrial Lead Paint Management. The 3 day course (an extension of the 2 day course), dealt with matters relevant to industrial Lead Paint Management, covering maintenance strategies, simplified risk assessment, emission control levels, large scale containment considerations and environmental monitoring. The final day was based on a "real-life" project, and attracted 12 attendees, generally those requiring the level of training for "Responsible Person for Industrial Lead Paint Management," as defined in AS 4361.1, and to meet the corresponding training requirements under the PCCP (Painting Contractors Certification Program) scheme.

The next set of courses will be run in July 1999.
