Lead overexposure is one of the most common overexposures found in industry and is a leading cause of workplace illness. To that end, the Construction Safety Council has developed, Lead Hazard Awareness for Construction. Thousands of employers and employees have received vital information on how to work safely with lead-containing products using this manual and in 2005, the CSC updated the original workbook to reflect the changes in regulatory requirements, personnel protective equipment, work methods, and medical surveillance.

This workbook is designed and written to provide an overview on lead hazards in construction, including, but not limited to:

  • History and sources of exposure to lead in the workplace
  • Hazards and health effects of lead
  • Regulatory requirements when working with lead
  • Role of exposure monitoring and medical surveillance
  • Use of engineering and work practice controls to reduce lead exposures
  • Use of respirator protection and other forms of personal protective equipment to reduce lead exposures when engineering and work practice controls are not adequate

The workbook is divided into five learning modules. Each module establishes specific learning objectives. At the end of each module, there is a brief review in the form of a quiz.
