Lead Abatement Worker Skill Standards.
Laborers-AGC Education and Training Fund, Pomfret Center, CT.
This document identifies skill standards for lead abatement in a manner that is easy to understand, useful, and meaningful to workers, educators, trainers, labor leaders, contractors, and project owners. To meet the needs of the various users of this document who will have a different application of the standards and seek different information, the standards have been designed with four informational components. The scenario describes the abatement process and conveys the context of applications of workplace skills, knowledge, and aptitudes. Conventional industry standards contain proficiency, health and safety, and production requirements that serve as performance criteria. Key tasks are selected from a master task list as identified and rated by incumbent workers. Only the tasks rated as most important and most frequently performed are included. A list of workplace skills, knowledge, and aptitudes (WSKAs) follows. These standards are included: personal preparation and decontamination; worker protection and personal protective equipment; residential containment; residential abatement: component removal and paint stripping; residential abatement: enclosure and encapsulation; structural containment; structural abatement; and cleanup. A final section contains detailed descriptions of key WSKAs, including the context, mastery performance level, content for training, and references to job functions and key tasks and activities in which the WSKA is included.
