Quick Overview

This online certification course is designed to highlight the regulatory requirements for working safely around lead in the construction industry. It can be used in the development of a lead awareness program, which employers are responsible for developing and implementing to protect workers from lead exposure. Course content includes applicable regulations, risks, and key safety practices.

Lead is found throughout the construction industry, from electrical fittings and conduits to lead-based paints, plumbing fixtures, and numerous metal alloys. While lead is valued for its durability, it is a toxic metal that causes serious health problems. According to the World Health Organization, "There is no level of exposure to lead that is known to be without harmful effects."

While the use of lead has been banned or reduced in many applications, construction industry personnel are at risk of both short-term and long-term lead exposure. Because exposure results in severe and non-reversible health problems, workers in the construction industries are required by law to take construction lead awareness training.

Who This Course is For

This course is for:

This lead hazard course is designed for all construction work in which an employee may be exposed to lead. This includes all work relating to construction, such as demolition or salvage of structures where lead might be present, removal of lead-containing materials, lead contamination from emergency cleanup, or installation of products containing lead.

OSHA lead training applies to both new construction and the repair, renovation, or replacement of existing work. This safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives.
