LEAD IN THE WORKPLACE
In this presentation we will review information based on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations as they relate to the elemental lead, all inorganic lead compounds and lead soaps within the United States. The regulations that we will refer to in this course can be found in 29 CFR 1910.1025. This course will review the sources and symptoms of lead exposure as well as protective measures that can safe guard against lead exposure and poisoning. According to OSHA, exposure to lead occurs in over 120 different occupations and estimates that the Lead Standard protects approximately 835,000 workers within the United States.
