We work safe and smart — right from square one.

Sound workplace safety benefits everyone — our student crews and their parents, our company's solid reputation, plus the homeowners whose houses we paint.

EPA Lead-Safe Certification

College Works follows all federal and state laws enacted for the prevention of lead contamination. These statues regulate renovation, repair and painting projects which may affect more than 20 square feet of painted surfaces in homes, child care facilities and schools built before 1978. Compliant company practices are managed through comprehensive training protocols.
Hiring a fully compliant Lead-Safe Certified company is the best way to ensure safety from lead contamination.

Electrocution Hazard Prevention

Metal ladders can present electrical hazards. College Works prevents this through the exclusive use of fiberglass ladders on all job sites.

Complete OSHA Compliance

College Works Painting actively meets and exceeds all OSHA requirements for residential house painting with frequent job site safety meetings, the use of harnesses while working on rooftops, independent safety inspections during production and comprehensive reporting of injuries and illnesses.

Regular Safety Meetings

Safety seminars are an important part of the initial training every intern and crew member must undergo, and are also held weekly on all job sites. This protocol meets and exceeds the required OSHA training by twofold.

Our Comprehensive Safety Manual

College Works Painting does more than just talk about safety. All employees must receive, review and constantly adhere to the company’s comprehensive safety manual. The College Works safety literature is updated regularly to reflect the latest procedures and innovations in accident prevention.
