An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Lead Awareness Program

   Lead Awareness

      Most lead over-exposures in the construction industry are found in the trades such as plumbing, welding and painting. In building construction, lead is frequently used for roofs, cornices, tank linings and electrical conduits. In plumbing, an alloy of lead/tin had been used extensively for soldering tin-plate and pipe joints. Use of lead solders in plumbing systems is now prohibited by law. Lead-based paint had also been used extensively for residential and commercial applications but has been banned for residential use by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Lead-based paint may still be used on metal structures (bridges, railways, beams, etc.) to prevent corrosion, although substitute coatings are now available.  In other industries, lead may be found in batteries, circuit boards, cathode ray tubes, and leaded glass.  [2]  

     Significant lead exposures can arise during stripping or demolition/ salvage of structures containing lead-based paint. The types of work with the greatest potential for lead exposure include iron work, demolition, painting, plumbing, electrical, lead-based paint abatement, heating/air conditioning and carpentry/renovation activities. 

     Unless working in a relatively new building (built since 1980), all paint should be treated as lead containing unless sampling shows otherwise.

      Disturbance is defined as scraping, washing, limited wet sanding, grinding, welding, drilling, small surface cutting for installation of equipment, repainting activities, cleaning activities, and minor surface modifications. 

      On Multi-Employer worksites, if our employees who are working immediately adjacent to a lead abatement activity are exposed to lead due to the inadequate containment of such job, Replace with Company Name shall either remove the employees from the area until the enclosure breach is repaired or perform an initial exposure assessment.
