(1) Rule R307-840, R307-841, and R307-842 establish procedures and requirements for the accreditation of training programs for lead-based paint activities and renovations, procedures and requirements for the certification of individuals and firms engaged in lead-based paint activities and renovations, and work practice standards for performing such activities. These rules also require that, except as outlined in R307-840-1(2), all lead-based paint activities and renovations, as defined in these rules, must be performed by certified individuals and firms.
(2) R307-840, R307-841, and R307-842 apply to all individuals and firms who are engaged in lead-based paint activities and renovations as defined in R307-840-2, except persons who perform these activities within residential dwellings that they own, unless the residential dwelling is occupied by a person or persons other than the owner or the owner's immediate family while these activities are being performed, or a child residing in the building has been identified as having an elevated blood lead level.
(3) R307-840, R307-841, and R307-842 identify lead-based paint hazards. The standards for lead-based paint hazards apply to target housing and child-occupied facilities.
(4) R307-840, R307-841, and R307-842 do not require the owner of the property or properties subject to these rules to evaluate the property or properties for the presence of lead-based paint hazards or take any action to control these conditions if one or more of them is identified.
(5) While R307-840, R307-841, and R307-842 establish specific requirements for performing lead-based paint activities and renovations should they be undertaken, these rules do not require that the owner or occupant undertake any particular lead-based paint activity or renovation.
(6) Individuals or firms wishing to deviate from the certification, notification, work practice, or other requirements of R307-840, R307-841, and/or R307-842 may do so only after requesting and obtaining written approval from the director.

(2) All preparation, cleanup, disposal, and post-abatement clearance testing activities associated with such measures.
(3) Specifically, abatement includes, but is not limited to:
(a) Projects for which there is a written contract or other documentation, which provides that an individual or firm will be conducting activities in or to a residential dwelling or child-occupied facility that:

(d) Projects resulting in the permanent elimination of lead-based paint hazards that are conducted in response to State of Utah or local abatement orders.
(4) Abatement does not include renovation, remodeling, landscaping or other activities, when such activities are not designed to permanently eliminate lead-based paint hazards, but, instead, are designed to repair, restore, or remodel a given structure or dwelling, even though these activities may incidentally result in a reduction or elimination of lead-based paint hazards.

"Visual Inspection for Clearance Testing" means the visual examination of a residential dwelling or a child-occupied facility following abatement to determine whether or not the abatement has been successfully completed.
"Visual Inspection for Risk Assessment" means the visual examination of a residential dwelling or a child-occupied facility to determine the existence of deteriorated lead-based paint or other potential sources of lead-based paint hazards.
"Weighted Arithmetic Mean" means the arithmetic mean of sample results weighted by the number of subsamples in each sample. Its purpose is to give influence to a sample relative to the surface area it represents. A single surface sample is comprised of a single subsample. A composite sample may contain from two to four subsamples of the same area as each other and of each single surface sample in the composite. The weighted arithmetic mean is obtained by summing, for all samples, the product of the sample's result multiplied by the number of subsamples in the sample, and dividing the sum by the total number of subsamples contained in all samples. For example, the weighted arithmetic mean of a single surface sample containing 60 ug/ft2, a composite sample (3 subsamples) containing 100 ug/ft2, and a composite sample (4 subsamples) containing 110 ug/ft2 is 100 ug/ft2. This result is based on the equation (60+(3*100)+(4*110))/(1+3+4).
"Wet Disposable Cleaning Cloth" means a commercially available, pre-moistened white disposable cloth designed to be used for cleaning hard surfaces such as uncarpeted floors or counter tops.

The window trough is sometimes referred to as the window "well."
"Wipe Sample" means a sample collected by wiping a representative surface of known area, as determined by ASTM E1728, "Standard Practice for Field Collection of Settled Dust Samples Using Wipe Sampling Methods for Lead Determination by Atomic Spectrometry Techniques", or equivalent method, with an acceptable wipe material as defined in ASTM E1792, "Standard Specification for Wipe Sampling Materials for Lead in Surface Dust."
"Work Area" means the area that the certified renovator establishes to contain the dust and debris generated by a renovation.
