  • My name is Chris, and I'm here to share some knowledge and help you connect workers

  • with safety.

  • Lead is one of the most common toxic elements found in industry and is a leading cause of

  • workplace illness with approximately 95% of all elevated blood lead levels reported among

  • adults in the United States are work-related.

  • Lead poisoning can damage the brain, liver, kidneys, and red blood cells.

  • It can also damage bones and cartilage, and harm the reproductive system.

  • When skin and eyes come in contact with lead dust, irritation can occur.

  • Lead can enter the body by ingestion or inhalation.

  • Where lead is present over the action level, employers must provide the workforce with

  • personal protective equipment (PPE) suitable for controlling the hazard.

  • Here are some of the ways you can protect yourself and workers against lead exposure:

  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as: Gloves; Safety glasses and face shield;

  • Respiratory Protection Respirators protect workers against oxygen

  • enriched or deficient oxygen environments, harmful dusts, fogs, smokes, mists, gases,

  • vapors, and sprays.

  • Ventilation Ventilation is one of the most important engineering

  • controls available to the industrial hygienist for improving or maintaining the quality of

  • the air in the occupational work environment.

  • Broadly defined, ventilation is a method of controlling the environment with air flow.

  • Even a little lead poisoning can cause serious health problems, and at very high levels,

  • it can be fatal.

  • So let's protect ourselves and others by utilizing these safety measures.
