Any person working on a lead abatement project or in a lead occupation in Nebraska must obtain a license.
A Lead occupation is a worker, supervisor, inspector, project designer, risk assessor (includes licensure as an inspector), visual lead hazard advisor, or elevated blood lead level investigator. License means an authorization issued by the Department permitting an individual to work in a lead occupation.
Abatement or abatement project means any measure or set of measures designed to permanently eliminate lead-based paint hazards.
Initial Application for Lead Occupation Certification
To renew a license, submit the following:
A renewal notice will be mailed by the Department to your last known address at least 30 days prior to the expiration of your license. Note: The Licensure Unit no longer mails wallet-size license cards. Please use the License Lookup website to view your license status and to view or print a license any time at no charge.
An individual, once licensed, must successfully complete an approved review course in order to renew his or her license, and must furnish proof of completion of such course during renewal.
For information on approved courses, contact DHHS.HealthHazardIndoorAir@nebraska.gov by e-mail or call (402) 471-0386.
An application for reinstatement to practice a lead occupation is required if your license has been revoked, expired, placed on inactive status, lapsed or voluntarily surrendered without disciplinary action.
