Lead
National Summary

This topic covers regulations surrounding lead, which come from several agencies, including OSHA, the EPA, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and the Department of Transportation (DOT). Lead exposure can cause a variety of health problems, including brain damage, reproductive problems, high blood pressure, kidney failure, and hearing loss.

OSHA’s lead regulations focus on protections for workers exposed to the metal. They include requirements for the use of PPE, including respirators; hygiene; cleaning; medical surveillance; communication of hazards; and training. OSHA has also developed permissible exposure limits for lead. Construction-industry standards are separate from those for general industry. The EPA’s regulations include standards for residential lead-based paint, lead disposal, emissions, drinking water, removal from contaminated sites, and disclosure to affected communities. The DOT regulates the transportation of lead waste materials and has labeling, packaging, and shipping requirements for these materials.
