Lead Awareness


Lead has been used for thousands of years for different reasons such as cooking pots, utensils, and plumbing. However, accidental exposure to and consumption of lead is poisonous and can result in significant organ and tissue damage. This course will teach employees about the hazards of lead exposure and controls used to minimize or eliminate those hazards. Employees will learn about the effects of lead exposure and the use of personal protective equipment and other methods to reduce the risk of hazardous exposure. This course is intended for general-industry employees who may be exposed to significant levels of lead, and can assist employers in meeting OSHA’s requirements on lead exposure. This course is presented in English and Spanish.
