Why “Lead Safety—General Industry” Matters:

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has extensive regulations that cover potential exposure to lead. OSHA’s standards require that employees potentially exposed to lead must be trained in a number of topics, including health hazards of lead, operations that could result in exposure, restricted areas, engineering controls, medical surveillance, personal protective equipment (PPE), hygiene and housekeeping, and decontamination procedures.

Key Points:

  • Although lead has been banned for many uses today, it is still produced in a few industries and widely found in older materials.
  • Exposure to lead can have harmful short- and long-term health effects.
  • It’s important that you know what you can do to protect yourself from the effects of lead exposure.
