LEAD PAINT HAZARDS

  • Comment
new publications

People working in buildings constructed before the 1970s, and where the metal or wooden surfaces have not been re-painted since then, may still encounter lead-containing paints. The British Coatings Federation has produced a 16-page booklet, Old Lead Painted Surfaces, as a guide to repainting and removal. It explains where lead is likely to be present in paint, the tests to confirm its presence, and the level of hazard.

The booklet is available from the British Coatings Federation, tel: 01372 360660.
