Lead is poisonous. If it's taken into the body, it can cause serious health problems and even be fatal. OSHA estimates that more than 800,000 U.S. workers work around lead regularly, and the majority of lead exposures occur on the job. Employees can be exposed to lead while sanding and stripping lead-based paint, welding or cutting painted metal, repairing and servicing automobile brakes, manufacturing ceramics or electronics, smelting or casting metals and performing numerous other tasks. This training program provides employees with the information they need to understand lead hazards and the safety regulations that address them (OSHA Standard 1910.1025). It also explains how to recognize lead hazards in the workplace and handle them safely.
