OSHA Lead Hazard Fact Sheet


Protecting Workers from Lead Hazards
Cleaning up after a flood requires hundreds of workers to renovate and repair, or
tear down and dispose of, damaged or destroyed structures and materials. Repair,
renovation and demolition operations often generate dangerous airborne concentrations of lead, a metal that can cause damage to the nervous system, kidneys,
blood forming organs, and reproductive system if inhaled or ingested in dangerous
quantities. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has
developed regulations designed to protect workers involved in construction
activities from the hazards of lead exposure.
