Working Safely With Lead.
- Working with lead can put your health at risk, causing symptoms including headaches, stomach pains and anaemia.
- Serious health effects include kidney damage, nerve and brain damage and infertility.
- The Control of Lead at Work Regulations 2002 (CLAW) places a duty on employers to prevent, or where this is not reasonably practicable, to control employee exposure to lead.
- Ensure your employees are fit to work and that you have the controls in good working order including medical surveillance.
The Lead blood test is used to determine the concentration of lead in the blood.
If lead poisoning has already been diagnosed, this test can monitor levels during treatment.
