Lead Awareness

Workers inhaling or ingesting unsafe levels of lead at work can put them at risk for organ damage, chronic health conditions or death. This is why lead awareness training is mandatory for any worker who may be exposed to harmful levels of lead on the job.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Lead Awareness standards 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1910 Subpart I, Subpart Z and 1926 Subpart D contain requirements for lead operations.
