Lead Safe Workers

Lead safe work practices are used to protect your family when you or a contractor disturbs old paint in your home built before 1978. These practices include working wet, using lead safe containment and clean-up practices, reducing dust and fumes created during renovation, and wearing protective gear.

Lead-based paint may be found on any surface in the home—inside or outside. When lead-based paint is disturbed during renovation, repair or painting activities, dangerous amounts of lead dust can be created.

Jobs such as demolition, window replacement, opening up walls, etc., can also release accumulated lead dust into the home. Even after a typical renovation cleanup, dangerous levels of lead dust can remain.
