Lead Hazard Control Orders

  • If the risk assessor determines lead hazards in a residential unit, child care facility, or school are contributing to a child’s lead poisoning, ODH or the local board of health will issue a lead hazard control order.
  • The lead hazard control order describes each lead hazard to be controlled and the date by which the property must pass a clearance examination. Owners have 90 days from their receipt of the lead hazard control order to pass clearance. If the health of occupants is at risk, they may be ordered to vacate the property until the property passes a clearance examination.
  • The order must be given to the owner and manager of the unit, facility or school. Occupants of each unit receive a copy and each parent, guardian or custodian of each child under six (in the case of a school or child care facility) receives a copy.
