June 7th, 2013 by Editor

HarenLaughlin Construction Co. of Lenexa, Kan., has agreed to pay a $27,286 civil penalty to settle allegations it failed to use proper lead-safe work practices during the renovation of a multifamily property, violating the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule. Additionally, the company allegedly failed to notify the property owner about lead-based paint risks before performing renovations.

As part of the agreement, the HarenLaughlin will complete a supplemental environmental project worth $24,500 to remove lead-based paints from an apartment complex and pay the remaining $2,786 in the form of a cash penalty.
