Lead

Why is lead paint dangerous? The toxic effects of lead are well documented in both children and adults. Workers exposed to lead can have damage to the central nervous system, reproductive system, cardiovascular system, hematological system, and the kidneys.

Lead Exposures

National efforts to reduce lead exposures and the removal of lead from paint around 1978 have helped reduce human exposure to lead, however, lead paint dangers exist in older homes, buildings and structures. Exposure in homes can occur during renovation and disturbance of lead based paint. Worker exposure can occur during renovations and maintenance of older homes, buildings and structures.
