Lead fumes, dust and flakes may be present in many industrial settings and processes, creating the potential for workers to be exposed to unsafe levels of lead. This training video explains the hazards associated with long-term exposure to small amounts of lead, and of short-term exposure to large amounts of lead. It informs workers how their body's major systems may be affected by lead overexposure, and alerts them to the symptoms associated with it.

The video tells employees what the permissible exposure limits are, how the workplace is monitored to ensure their safety, and what types of engineering and work practice controls they may have to use to minimize lead exposure. The use of personal protective equipment, such as respirators, and decontamination chambers or showers are covered, as is the need to wash one's hands, face and hair to ensure lead contaminants are not carried beyond the work area, potentially affecting family members.

Workers learn they may be required to have a medical exam or periodic blood tests to determine lead exposure levels. What to expect if testing reveals an overexposure to lead is discussed.

This online training video reminds seasoned workers of the potential toxic effects of lead in the workplace, and gives new employees a thorough appreciation for the importance of complying with safe work practices and established protective programs.
