LEAD EXPOSURE CONTROL PLAN BC
Lead has been poisoning workers for thousands of years. Lead can damage the central nervous system, cardiovascular system, reproductive system, hematological system, and kidneys. When absorbed into the body in high enough doses, lead can be toxic. Lead is most commonly absorbed into the body by inhalation. When workers breathe in lead as a dust, fume, or mist, their lungs and upper respiratory tract absorb it into the body. They can also absorb lead through the digestive system if it enters the mouth and is ingested. Workers potentially at risk for lead exposure include those involved in iron work; demolition work; painting; lead-based paint 5 abatement; plumbing; heating and air conditioning maintenance and repair; electrical work; and carpentry, renovation, and remodeling work. Plumbers, welders, and painters are among those workers most exposed to lead. The WorkSafeBC Occupational Health and Safety Regulations require employers to develop an exposure control plan for Lead if workers have a risk of exposure.
