Did you know that the amount of lead that could be contained in a sugar package is enough to contaminate a 1,500 sf home?
According to OSHA, workplace exposure is a major cause of adult lead poisoning and workers exposed to lead dust can inadvertently introduce lead to their homes and family from clothing, skin or shoes. Even very small amounts of lead can be hazardous for pregnant women and young children.

Lead Safety Practices: Always follow lead work safe practices (http://www2.epa.gov/lead/renovation-repair-and-painting-program) and all appropriate guidelines (e.g. OSHA, NIOSH, EPA and all other applicable Federal and State Laws and Regulations). To control lead exposure, the use of a respirator, eye protection, and protective clothing is recommended. Use only with adequate ventilation, if you experience difficulty breathing; leave the area to obtain fresh air. If continued difficulty is experienced, seek medical assistance immediately. Avoid contact with eyes and skin; in case of eye contact, flush immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and seek medical assistance. For skin, wash thoroughly with soap and water.
If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint, you may release lead dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD DUST CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID EXPOSURE. Wear a NIOSH-approved respirator to control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a HEPA vacuum and a wet mop.
