||Risks of exposure to lead arise mainly during the use of the metal in the chemical, metallurgical and glass industries, as well as in building renovation, since old paints used in buildings often contain lead. According to the SUMER 1994 survey (see CIS 95-161), more than 120,000 workers are at risk of exposure to lead in France. Topics covered in this special feature on lead: sectors at risk; secondary exposure of persons close to the directly-exposed workers; regulations; sampling and analysis of lead concentrations in workplace air by accredited laboratories; medical supervision; appropriateness of lowering limit values for blood lead; toxic effects; lead poisoning; collective and personal protective measures on building renovation sites; building waste management; example of preventive measures implemented by a lead battery producer.
