Inorganic lead (lead) is a toxic heavy metal and it is found in many different products including paints, glass, solder, plastic and rubber compounds. Lead is an accumulative poison. The body can excrete lead however, when more lead is absorbed than the body excretes, the amount of lead in the body is increased.
The Lead (Working With) Policy is a document that contains a policy and procedure to document an organisation’s aim to protect the safety of its workers by implementing risk management strategies in regards to working with lead.
The Policy can be used as a stand-alone document or incorporated into your existing OHS Management System.
