Lead policy

LEAD POLICY

Prevent lead intoxication and related illnesses during the use, handling, removal, and melting of materials containing lead


What is lead

WHAT IS LEAD

* A heavy metal which includes all metallic lead and all inorganic lead compounds

* Some of the properties of lead that make it a useful structural material

are:

  • Low Melting Point

  • Very abundant

  • High density

  • Very malleable (easy to shape)


Common uses for lead

Batteries

Ballast

Weights

Radiation Shielding

Solder

Paints

Pipe joints

Ammunition

Common Uses for Lead


Operations that can cause lead exposure

Operations That Can Cause Lead Exposure

- Lead melting and casting

- Ballast handling

- Grinding or Sanding material

- Torch soldering

- Lead-acid battery

- Machining lead

- Removal of lead-based paints (most

common)


Entry intothe body

Entry IntoThe Body

  • Inhalation (breathing)

  • Ingestion (by mouth)

  • Skin (open cuts)

  • Prolong exposure to lead will begin

    to be stored in the body. It will be

    deposited in skeleton and various

    organs

  • Your system can not reduce the amount

    of lead stored inside thus individuals

    begin to suffer symptoms of lead poisoning


Health hazards

HEALTH HAZARDS

  • Lead interferes with the information of the hemoglobin in blood causing anemia

  • Lead causes cellular

    kidney damage which

    leads to kidney failure

  • Decreased fertility rate

KIDNEY DAMAGE

ANEMIA DECREASE FERTILITY

HEMOGLOBIN


Control of lead

CONTROL OF LEAD

  • SUBSTITUTION

  • ENGINEERING

  • ADMINSTRATIVE

  • PERSONAL PROTECTION

    EQUIPMENT


General workplace control practices

General Workplace Control Practices

  • Use reduced lead paint coatings

  • Only low lead paints shall be used in

    the interior of structures or on other

    surfaces which may pose an ingestion

    hazard


General workplace control practices cont d

GENERAL WORKPLACE CONTROL PRACTICES cont'd

When feasible, the heating of lead and leaded materials shall be minimized through the use of controlled heating or the

removal of lead-containing surface

coatings prior to heating

Procedures shall be established to

maintain work surfaces as free of lead dust as practical. Lead dust shall be cleaned with HEPA filtered vacuum cleaners


Ventilation

VENTILATION

To the extent feasible, fixed local exhaust ventilation connected to HEPA filters or other collection systems, approved by the cognizant industrial hygienist, shall be provided at the point of airborne particulate generation


Personal protective equipment

Personal Protective Equipment

In work areas where the possibility of eye or skin irritation exists, employees shall don protective clothing


Warning signs

WARNING SIGNS

  • Signs shall be provided and displayed at

  • each location where airborne lead may

  • exceed the PEL

DANGER

Lead Work Area

Poison

No Smoking, Eating or Drinking

  • The warning sign may contain a listing

  • of required protective equipment


Caution labels

CAUTION LABELS

  • Affix to containers of material, debris or other products containing lead

CAUTION

Contaminated with Lead

Dispose of lead contaminated wash water in

accordance with applicable local, state and federal regulations


Housekeeping cont d

HOUSEKEEPING(CONT’D)

  • In lead work areas, the following housekeeping operations shall be performed:

  • Wet Cleaning of All Surface Areas

  • HEPA Vacuum

  • - Avoid dry sweeping and the use of

  • compressed air

  • Prohibit the following practices in lead areas:

  • - Eating

  • - Drinking

  • - Chewing or smoking tobacco

  • - Applying make-up

  • - Storage of food or tobacco

  • All workers shall wash their hands and face prior to eating,

  • drinking, smoking or applying cosmeticsafter completion of lead work


Disposal of lead

DISPOSAL OF LEAD

  • FOLLOW ALL APPLICABLE

    LAWS

  • PROPER DISPOSAL CONTAINERS

  • LABELING OF CONTAINERS

  • CHECK WITH BASE DRMO/

    ENVIRONMENT OFFICE


Training

TRAINING

  • The minimum lead safety training will consist of:

    - The specific nature of the operations

    during which exposure is possible

    - The purpose, proper selection, use

    and limitations of respirators

    - Adverse Health Effects (Reproductive)

    - Work Practices including

    Controls factors

    - Medical Surveillance Program

    - Contents of Command’s

    Compliance Plan


T r a i n i n g cont d

T R A I N I N G (cont'd)

All affected employees shall receive a copy of

29 CFR 1910.1025

"Lead Standard"


Workplace monitoring plan

Workplace Monitoring Plan

  • An Industrial Hygienist shall evaluate all workplaces at least

  • annually, or more frequently if necessary, where lead is

  • used and shall reevaluate the operation within 5 working

  • days of any work process or control change

  • Collect personal samples including at least one sample

  • for each shift, for each job classification, in each work area

  • Retain records for a period of employment plus 20 years
